"Vocus Communications has laid two fibre cables across Sydney Harbour - to shave microseconds from the trip time from 
the CBD to the ASX data centre in Gore Hill."

"Vocus already operates a cable through the Sydney Harbour Tunnel but according to CEO James Spenceley the new cable is 
some 700 metres shorter and represents the lowest latency link available between the CBD and the ASX data centre."
