American Samoa to install fibre optic cable to Hawaii

10:03 am on 16 April 2008

American Samoa should have an undersea fibre optic connection before the end of the year.

Governor Togiola Tulafono says a down payment has been made to a shipping company that will transport a fibre optic cable now in use in New Zealand and land it in the territory in November.

He says the connection between American Samoa and Hawaii should be completed by December.
