    Hopefully this will help west coast hosts/datacenters have better connectivity to the ASIA region.

    We'll see. CNC/CT was never known for open peering (or rather, in upgrading open peering ports) and charge extreme amounts in the US for private ports so this might prove useless after all (or useful if enough T1 upstreams of CNC/CT profit from the new route and give this to their customers)

    Looks like what Google has been trying to do for inroads into China.

    Wonder how much cash Google is throwing into this project?

    Odd to me that I see Chinese companies, Singtel (Singapore right?) .... but the project is in Japan....

    Singtel is a big player in entire Asia, just with main focus on SG and ID.

    KDDI is from Japan, but most cables usually do go to Japan first and then the rest of Asia.

    KDDI is pretty big in Asia as I understand it. They own Telehouse which has a presence in the US & Europe.

    Where in the US, any further data? Direct  SEA / SJ is most likely, but who knows.

    "Connections in the United States will extend the system to major hubs on the US West Coast covering the Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle areas."

    His point is that doesn't say where. Not specific.

    Very interesting.  I guess we'll have to wait till 2016 to see how everything pans out.
