Cyta announced on Wednesday (March 30) the start of operations on the ARSINOE optical fiber subsea cable system, which will cover the country’s increased need for international connectivity in crucial areas, especially for Internet and Cloud services. It reinforces security on alternative routing of digital communications between Cyprus and the rest of the world and responds to the need for services that require a brief delay in data transmission.

ARSINOE, connecting Yeroskipou (Cyprus),Abu Talat (Egypt) and Marseille (France) with a length of 3,750km, is the latest addition to Cyta’s extensive subsea cable system, and links the Eastern Mediterranean with data and telecommunications centres in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. It thus strengthens the role of the Organisation and, by extension, Cyprus as an ultra-modern telecommunications hub in the region.

The ARSINOE cable system is a private system owned by Cyta, being a subsystem of the PEACE cable system.
