SubPartners is excited to announce Asia Pacific Express (APX), a vision that will deliver a new paradigm in independent submarine cable development.

APX is the name for two distinct cable projects. APX-West (Singapore to Perth via Jakarta) and APX-East (express route from Sydney to the United States) with branching units servicing New Zealand, Hawaii and other Pacific Islands on-route.

Together these two systems represent a $450m investment in the Asia Pacific region and will deliver a new diverse route between Southeast Asia and the United States.

Initially announced in July 2012, SubPartners is well on the way to delivering our vision. Over the past six months we have formed a team of some of the most experienced and respected submarine experts in the region. Permit applications have been lodged, desktop surveys and supply contracts completed and various landing arrangements are being finalised.

We will be publishing our progress on our blog, providing a rare insight into the construction of a submarine cable system. The blog will include technical details of the system, design information, photo’s, video, commentary and the ability for users to ask questions and post comments.
