iiNet CEO Michael Malone said that the deal would benefit the internet service provider's customers by providing more capacity on some of the busiest international routes for international content.

"We have always supported competition in the international cable space, and the additional capacity and choice Pacific Fibre is delivering can only be good for both our business and the industry in general," Malone said in a statement.

Pacific Fibre's $400 million undersea cable system will connect Australia, New Zealand and the US. It is scheduled to be in commercial service by early 2014. Pacific Fibre has signed up US-based infrastructure company TE Connectivity to build the 12,750km undersea telecommunications fibre cable link.
