Undersea cable to link Andaman, mainland [Infrastructure]
The Union Cabinet approved a proposal for improving telecom connectivity in Andaman & Nicobar Islands by connecting union territory with Chennai via an undersea optical fibre cable.
Currently, the only medium of providing telecom connectivity between the Mainland and Andaman & Nicobar Islands is through satellites.
However, since satellite bandwidth is very costly and its availability is limited, future bandwidth requirement cannot be met solely through it.
Lack of bandwidth and telecom connectivity is hampering socio-economic development of the islands. Hence, it is essential to have submarine optical fibre cable (OFC) connectivity between the mainland and Andaman & Nicobar Islands.
Dedicated submarine OFC will connect Mainland (Chennai) & Port Blair and five other islands- Little Andaman, Car Nicobar, Havelock, Kamorta & Great Nicobar.
The connectivity would allow the implementation of e-governance initiatives; establishment of enterprises and e-commerce facilities in the islands.
It would also allow for “support to educational institutes for knowledge-sharing and availability of job opportunities.”
