stc Group launches first high-speed cable in the Red Sea

RIYADH: Telecommunications firm stc Group has launched the first high-speed cable in the Red Sea, known as Saudi Vision Cable, through its landing station in Jeddah, the Saudi Press Agency reported. 

Fully owned by the company, the Saudi Vision Cable spans 1.16 million meters, with its name inspired by the Kingdom’s Vision 2030. 

The new cable will provide connectivity up to 18 Terabytes per second/fiber pair with a total of 16 fiber pairs through four landings in Jeddah, Yanbu, Duba, and Haql.

“Saudi Vision Cable provides communication between several international information centers,” CEO Olayan Alwetaid said.

“It also achieves the raising level of the unified optical fiber platform that is cost-efficient and flexible, and provides access — low latency — to all international cables in the landing stations and information centers of the stc Group,” he added.
