The new ultra-fast cable will multiply the existing data transfer rate and was expected to ultimately reach 1.25 terabytes per second, equivalent to conducting more than 15 million calls simultaneously. When running at full capacity, the data transfer rate would be equivalent to more than a million internet users simultaneously having real-time access to a one-megabyte file. Highlighting the rapidly growing demand for high-speed connectivity, he said the SEA-ME-WE-4 submarine cable system, spanning over 20,000 kilometres and stretching from Singapore to France with landings in 16 countries, including Pakistan, catered to voice and data exchanges, internet and e-commerce.
