AT&T fires up transatlantic cable

AT&T today said its transatlantic high-bandwidth TAT 12/13 Cable Network is ready for action this week after three years of work.

The TAT 12/13 is the world's longest undersea fibre optic cable at 12,400km, and can carry twice the data of current fibre cables, according to AT&T.

AT&T owns a 20 per cent majority share in the undersea cable which was financed by over 75 telecommunications firms. The cable network connects the UK to France and the US.
