Actually, it is a big deal. Hibernia is already the only cable system that can send Irish traffic directly to North
American without backhauling to the UK. That's a significantly latency and diversity advantage.
We can now send traffic directly to the US on both cables without UK backhaul and hence provide more physical
It also enables us to serve an underserved market, Northern Ireland, and provide low latency and protected services
betweeen the UK and Ireland.
And we beat the who-whos of telecom in winning this RFP. :)

That's just a spur from the existing Hibernia Atlantic fibre that goes
from Halifax to Dublin. In my opinion, that should have been done from
the very beginning.
Is all of this terrestrial network already in place?
