the cables laid beneath the sea

Finally, they are gonna hit our islands soon. Hopefully very soon. This is good news. Number one reason being that this should bring down the cost of communications. More bandwidth. Hopefully more stable communication channels.

Its not a easy job, as it sounds. A lot of logistical issues and technical issues need to be resolved. It will be easy to say just get the damn thing laid and add the interfaces and do the routing. If everything was as easy as it sounds, we can do so much. Anyway that's a different story, but lets hope this will be a major break through for Maldives. The cost of communication has been coming down, since competition was introduced. Its been so much improved, that people have almost forgot how things were a few years back. The call charges, and the internet charges. Not to talk about the services that we use to have. All that seems to have changed over night. Suddenly things are improving so fast. This is really good. Even the customer are getting more aware and demanding more. That again is good news, it helps the companies to develop and deliver better quality service. But then again things don't happen over night. If you are the one who is suppose to do all the work then only you will know. One thing we often forget is, its easy said then done.

i agree with ya chopey. i share the same enthusiasm, but lets hope that commercial competition will help keep things affordable and speed up the process of infilteration of the benefits that could be derived from such a cable... ive got my fingers crossed.
