The newly laid sub-marine Optic Fibre Cable, between Chennai and Port Blair, will be inaugurated by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, on 10th August, 2020. This cable will provide high speed broadband facility between the Indian main land and the Andaman & Nicobar Islands.
The 2,300 km sub-marine Optic Fibre Cable has been laid at a cost of Rs.1,224 crore. It is funded from the USO Fund. Laying of this sub-marine Optic Fibre Cable is entrusted to BSNL, which has executed the project on time.
This sub-marine Optic Fibre Cable will provide 2 x 200 Gigabits bandwidth between Chennai and Port Blair. It will provide 2 x 100 Gigabits bandwidth within the Andaman & Nicobar Islands.
Presently, satellite bandwidth is being used to connect the Indian main land and the Andaman & Nicobar Islands. This satellite bandwidth is costly. Moreover, the connectivity was poor and frequent disruptions were also there.
