Submitted by Karthik on 17 December, 2005 - 10:30

As reported previously, the SEA-ME-WE-4 undersea cable linking 14 countries across Asia, Africa and Europe has gone live as scheduled. Both VSNL and Bharti have a stake in this joint venture. VSNL will also function as the primary network administrator of the venture.

India is now officially a bandwidth surplus country, and international bandwidth prices are expected to fall steadily as a result of this development.
