What you should know about the Luzon Bypass Infrastructure
« on: November 16, 2017, 09:49:10 AM »
Dubbed the Luzon Bypass Infrastructure, the project involves two cable landing stations that will be connected by a 250-km long cable network corridor.


Since Facebook will be the first party to utilize the infrastructure, they will be the one to build and operate the submarine cable system that will land in the cable stations on the east and west coasts of Luzon.

In exchange, Facebook will be providing the PH government with spectrum that’s equivalent to at least two million megabits per second, according to Rio.

That’s a hell of a lot of capacity, and is almost equal to the current combined capacity of Globe Telecom and PLDT, making the government a virtual third player in the telco industry. With that much bandwidth, the DICT would have an easier time hitting President Duterte’s ambitious the National Broadband Plan.

The project is expected to be finished and operational by 2019.
