The Skagen Fiber West is a 170km submarine cable connecting Norway (Larvik) and Denmark (Hirtshals).
The Skagen Fiber cable system consists of 48 fiber pairs, provides over 1920 Tbps of system capacity and a designed round-trip delay (RTD) of approximately 1.7 ms between the Larvik cable landing stations in Norway and Hirtshals cable landing station in Denmark.
The Skagen Fiber cable system is building and owned by Lyse/Altibox (100%), to be ready by the end of Q3 2020.
In December 2019, Altibox acquired 100% of shares in Skagenfiber AS and the Skagen Fiber cable system between Norway and Denmark. Combined the Skagen Fiber cable system and the NO-UK cable system, Altibox Carrier is establishing a large fiber network across Europe, EUROCONNECT-1.
