Telstra and Prysmian Group today announced an expansion to Prysmian optical cable manufacturing plant In Australia, to build the industry-leading fibre optic cable required for Telstra’s intercity fibre network, with advanced technology that aims to reduce the environmental impact of the project.
Telstra InfraCo is building the intercity fibre network in response to the ever-growing demands for fast and capable digital networks.
“The intercity fibre network project will future-proof Australia’s connectivity needs for the next 20+ years. We have already laid hundreds of kilometres of cables across the country and have commenced planning on several new fibre routes that will see all mainland capital cities connected,”
said Brendon Riley, Telstra InfraCo CEO.
