Telstra has made two new significant investments into subsea cable infrastructure in order to boost connectivity between Asia and the Unted States.

The investments include a large-capacity purchase on the New Cross Pacific (NCP) cable and a further funding in the Faster cable, which stretches between the US and Japan.

Telstra claimed the deals confirmed its subsea cable network as the largest in the Asia Pacific.
