The Quantum Cableis a 7,700km subsea ultra high speed fibre-optic cable system connecting NEOM City in Saudi Arabia directly with the U.S. and Europe via the Mediterranean Sea. It connects NEOM with Cyprus, Italy, France and Spain.
The Quantum Cable System deploys state-of-the-art transmission technology at an ultra-fast broadband speed of up to 160 Tbps. One of the unique features of the Quantum Cable system is that it will have one of the lowest latency rates between Asia and Europe.
Global telecommunications will undergo a drastic and revolutionary change with the introduction of the Quantum Cable, the super-fast subsea cable of up to 200Tbps in the Mediterranean, fully supported by the government of Cyprus and the European Commission.
Such infrastructure is a critical link between NEOM, Europe and the U.S. and will enhance the capacity of internet connections.
The cable will have the capacity to handle up to
The Quantum Cable will be laid at depths of more than 3,000 metres in parallel with the EuroAfrica Interconnector and will achieve a “massive data highway” at very high interconnection speeds. Reaching Spain to the MAREA subsea cable connecting across the Atlantic Ocean from Virginia in the US.
