Palau and the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) are jointly undertaking a project to establish broadband internet connectivity to Palau and Yap State, FSM. This will be achieved by connecting Palau via a spur to the Southeast Asia–United States (SEA–US) submarine cable that joins the international cable hub in Guam. Currently, Palau relies entirely on geo-stationary satellite links for internet connectivity into the country.
The cable will land in Palau at Meyuns Hamlet in Koror, at an existing government-owned landing site used by PNCC. The Belau Submarine Cable Corporation (BSCC) is a newly established cable company in Palau. BSCC will act as the wholesale supplier of internet in Palau whereupon local telecom providers will be responsible for providing a retail internet service using their own infrastructure.
The current estimated date for the physical completion of the submarine cable connection in Palau is 30 September 2018.
