New Zealand to benefit from Google's Topaz subsea cable

New Zealand's telecom market continues to be buttressed by the mobile broadband and fibre sectors. Almost a quarter of fixed broadband subscribers now take a gigabit service, which is testament to the robust nature of the supporting infrastructure.

This infrastructure has been buttressed by the country's excellent subsea cable connectivity, which includes the Tasman Global Access Cable linking Auckland and Sydney (providing an alternative path for traffic carried by the Tasman-2 and Southern Cross cables). The company SCCN has also initiated work on the Southern Cross NEXT cable, running between Sydney, Auckland, and Los Angeles. The 12,250km system is scheduled for completion by mid-2022, and has a design capacity of 72Tb/s.

In mid-2018 the cable developer Hawaiki completed its cable linking Australia, New Zealand, and Hawaii to the US west coast at Oregon. More recently, Google has started laying the 240Tb/s Topaz cable, which will link Canada (at Vancouver) with Honolulu, Sydney, and Auckland. In addition, the Chilean company Desarrollo Pais in January 2022 contracted H2 to build the 14,810km Humboldt cable connecting Valparaiso (Chile) to Auckland and Sydney. This cable is expected to be lit in early 2025.
