Climate is undoubtedly one the most threatening issue that all the countries are dealing with that may be developed or developing. Few countries such as Maldives and many south asian countries are already experiencing worse consequences of climate shift but finally there is something to cheer up about this deadly issue.
Melting up of ice-pack in the Arctic Ocean has cleared the route for the installation of 15,000 km undersea fiber-optic wires which will first time provide a channel to connect Europe and Asia.
Earlier ships faced the issue of navigating the icy Northwest Passage while installing fiber-optic cables but that’s no longer going to be an obstacle as route connecting Pacific and Atlantic oceans is going to be available for installations of wires for internet services or may be any other communication services.
Installation of fiber-optic cables will not only improve internet services in the Arctic region but will also eventually result into better internet infrastructure as cable ships will be pass freely through southern part of northwestern passage.
Quintillion Networks, company that has undertaken this project says first phase of this project will begin this month, they will install subsea cables connecting land-line in Fairbanks and Alaska which will support broadband access throughout Northern Alaska.
Thanks to this project that people dwelling in remotest regions of North America, will have access to affordable and feasible internet and underwater fiber-optic cable internet infrastructure will start providing its services in early 2017. This is so called first phase of the mega-project, in later phases company will work on linking USA to Europe and Asia which will be first of its kind to connect continents by fiber-optic cables.
There are many projects going all round the world to connect people and give them access to high speed affordable internet, let’s see how table turns out Quintillion Networks and their efforts really pay-off or project may be effected by constantly varying climatic conditions.
