Complaints about internet connections coming from Asia-Pacific region are exceedingly large in number. As compared to rest of the world this region has continually addressed lag issues and slowdown speeds in regard with internet connections.
However one may witness a sea change in this region, quite literally, if the association led by Time Dotcom has their way. FaceBook along with other big names of the internet industry will be make a combined investment in excess of $ 450 million for a 6,214 mile undersea fiber optic cable into Asia Pacific Gateway running through South Korea, Japan and Malaysia.
If this project takes shape it will help reduce routing needs in regard with volumes of traffic through Singapore. With the long fiber optic cable pipe in place majority of the traffic will be sent to the US.
Considering FaceBook and other internet giants host majority of their content on the Eastern side of the ocean, there is no reason to believe this project won’t take shape. If the fiber optic pipe makes its way expect unimaginable speeds.
