Kumul Submarine Cable

Kumul Submarine Domestic Fiber Cable Network is a national backbone transmission network. This network intends to provide high speed capacity to coastal centres and more remote coastal centres of PNG. The new capacity will improve access to broadband and internet services to all users throughout the coastal centres of the country. This network will also provide additional interconnection points to international submarine cables in Madang, Vanimo and Jayapura (Indonesia) resulting in more reliable international telecommunication services for PNG.

The Kumul Submarine Domestic Network consists of three systems, System 1 (blue line) connecting Jayapura to Arawa with 7 branching units connecting to Vanimo, Wewak, Lorengau, Madang, Kimbe, Kavieng and Kokopo; System 2 (green line) connecting Madang to Pom with 3 branching units connecting to Lae, Popondetta and Alotau; System 3 (black line) connecting Daru and Kerema to the existing branching units in LNG system.
