Vocus Communications | Australia Singapore Cable

Australia's & Asia's First 40Tbps Sub-sea Network.

The Vocus Communications Australia Singapore Cable (ASC) was commissioned as Ready for Service on 14 September 2018.

The ASC is a 4,600km submarine cable system linking Perth, Western Australia, to Singapore, via Indonesia.

The four-pair fibre network will deliver a minimum of 40Tbps of capacity and will offer an approximate 30% reduction in latency from Sydney to Singapore compared to alternative routes.

The ASC, which is solely owned by Vocus Communications, extends the reach of the company’s 21,000km fibre network, delivering connectivity, bandwidth and reliability to consumers and business as the world becomes more data-driven.
