“Broadband internet access is becoming so vital for businesses that it can be seen as a new utility comparable to water and electricity.”

United Nation Conference on Trade And Development (CNUSED)

About Us

We are a new bandwidth supplier in the Pacific submarine cable market.

Our goal is to significantly contribute to the development of Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Islands' economies by providing future-proof capacity and direct access to the US market.

This means:
- Increase international broadband availability
- Stimulate economic growth by eliminating the double tyranny of distance and over-priced international bandwidth
- Introduce true competition in New Zealand and in the connected Pacific Islands
- Drop the cost of Internet access for the end-users

Thanks to its specific design, the Hawaiki Cable represents a solution to improve:

- Trans-Pacific connectivity between Australia, New Zealand and the US
- Trans-Tasman connectivity between Australia and New Zealand
- Hawaii connectivity to Continental US
- Pacific Islands connectivity to New Zealand, Australia and the US
