Dotcom pledges to resurrect international cable project

Sim Ahmed | Nov. 6, 2012
Kim Dotcom has announced his intention to invest in a second Internet cable connecting New Zealand to the world.

In a conversation Brislen had with a Google executive recently he was told the deciding factors for building a Google data center in a country are its power supply, liveability for Google engineers, the number of IT graduates available and international connectivity.

Vodafone and REANNZ had contracts with Pacific Fibre to fund the cable, with REANNZ committing to $91 million before the venture wound up. Computerworld is seeking comment from the two organisations as to whether they would take up the commitments once again.
