Submarine cable system

Six telecommunications operators have signed a memorandum of understanding to build a fiber-optic submarine cable system, known as Baltica, which will connect Poland with Sweden and Denmark. Total distance for the segments will be approximately 400 kilometers, with no underwater repeaters. The $20 million project will provide a second undersea cable route from the Nordic countries to Poland--$2 million to $3 million will be spent on synchronous digital hierarchy equipment running at 2.5 gigabits per second. The telecommunications operators include Tele Danmark A/S, Telia AB, Telenor AS, Telekomunikacja Polska S.A., Telecom Finland Oy and Great Northern Telegraph Co.
