New internet cable could connect Chile and Sydney

Invercargill has a realistic chance of being connected with a new fibre-optic cable running between Sydney and Chile, giving hopes of building a data centre industry in Southland a huge boost. Chilean newspaper “El Mercuriro” reported that the Chilean government planned to build a subsea cable linking Valparaiso in Chile, Sydney and New Zealand, modifying a proposal it was investigating last year for a cable between Chile and China.
