The fastest-yet communications cable in Asia came online today (Aug. 20).
The underwater fiber optic cable links Japan, Hong Kong, the Philippines,
Malaysia and Singapore for high-speed, computerized stock trading.

The system transmits information at 40 gigabits per second, three
milliseconds faster than any other system in the region, the BBC
"The gain may sound small, but could prove critical to financial trades
made out of the region," according to the report.
