In March 2018, I made up my mind and published an article to share a closer look at landscape of submarine cables in India with 17 submarine cables landing in 15 cable landing stations (CLS) owned by 6 service providers. It was well received. Meanwhile 2 new submarine cable systems under construction – IOX and CACS, progressed steadily for RFS in Q4 2019. A new cable system from South Africa - SAEx2, that competes with IOX, also inched forward, though it remains to be seen if it gets funded eventually. A new cable from Singapore also appeared on the drawing board – SEAX-3.
