(The Hosting News) – German web hosting company and data center operator Hetzner Online is investing in a 1,100 km long deep sea cable from Rostock to the capital of Finland, Helsinki. The fiber optic link is expected to be put into operation in the spring of 2016.
Preparations for cable system implementation have started with routing and marine surveys.
Hetzner Online has signed a contract with Finnish connectivity provider Cinia Group Ltd. for the acquisition of an undersea cable that will provide the first direct cable link between mainland Europe and the Nordic region. Finland is well situated geographically and is one of the most important connections between Eastern and Western Europe.
