New transatlantic fibre cable from Denmark to the US

By fourth quarter 2019, a new subsea fibre optic cable system will bring more capacity, diversity and reliability to the connectivity of Denmark and provide a direct high-capacity route to North America. 

The announcement of the new submarine cable follows key investments in hyperscale data centres in Denmark over recent years from major tech players, including Apple and Facebook.

“Invest in Denmark is proud to welcome Aqua Comms and the other consortium companies into the country with this fantastic addition to our internet infrastructure, which will benefit consumers and companies alike. We could not be happier about this investment," says Steen Hommel, Director, Invest in Denmark and continues:

Landing a brand new, top-of-the-line fibre cable on the west coast of Jutland will further cement Denmark’s connectivity to North America and improve digital growth opportunities for Danish companies and foreign investors in Denmark. This investment in crucial digital infrastructure further underlines the value of recent hyper scale data centre investments into Denmark.
