Australia West Express

GoTo Networks, Inc. is pleased to announce plans to build the Australia West Express (AWE) undersea telecommunications cable system from Perth, Australia to Djibouti with forwarding connectivity to Europe, Africa and Middle East.

Australia West Express is designed to serve the growing traffic demands between Australia and Europe with low latency and low risk and will also serve the growing needs of islands in the Indian Ocean. 

A terminus landing in Djibouti provides the Australia West Express client with competitive options for forwarding traffic to Europe, as well as Eastern Africa, the Middle East, and the Eastern Mediterranean, and the direct route from Perth to Djibouti ensures the lowest latency between Australia and Europe and other points west. Expected Ready for Service date for Australia West Express is 2nd Quarter 2018.
