After 5's - International Connectivity - is there really a problem to be solved?

New Zealand has on occasion been coined as the ‘last bus stop before Antarctica’ lending weight to the idea that we are at the bottom of the world. However with the inception of the internet and international cables connecting us to the world, we are no longer so far away.

The current Southern Cross Cable system was constructed in the later 1990’s and came into service in November 2000. Completion of the fully protected loop network was finalised on 28 February 2001 and since then this cable system has served us well. However, several attempts have been made to build a second cable system but have not progressed past being designed.

At this event, a panel including the current CEO of Southern Cross, Anthony Briscoe, will discuss the issue of whether there actually is a problem that needs solving.
