  • Description

    THE LAYING OF THE SUBMARINE CABLE FOR SEACOM, THE SOUTHEAST ASIA-COMMONWEALTH COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM, LINKING HONGKONG WITH SABAH (MALAYSIAN BORNEO) AND SINGAPORE HAS BEEN COMPLETED BY 'MERCURY', THE CABLE SHIP, WHICH MADE THE FINAL SPLICE ON NOVEMBER 7 OFF DEEP WATER BAY WHERE THE HONGKONG SHORE END OF THE SYSTEM IS SITUATED.

    THE CABLE NOW LINKS HONGKONG WITH ALMOST EVERY COUNTRY IN THE COMMONWEALTH AND THE UNITED STATES, INCLUDING AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND.

    THIS SYSTEM OF DIRECT CABLE LINKS WILL ELIMINATE THE INTERFERENCE INHERENT IN ANY SYSTEM OF WIRELESS TRANSMISSION. IT WILL ALSO MEAN EASIER, QUICKER AND CLEARER CALLS FROM HONGKONG TO AUSTRALIA, NORTH AMERICA, THE CARIBBEAN AND EUROPE.
