Hawaiki Cable

Re: Minister talks about the future 

You should’ve asked a question about the Hawaiki cable project which runs from N.Z. and Australia through Fiji, American Samoa to Hawaii and then onwards to the US mainland. 

It has far greater capacity than the Tui Samoa cable but is also more expensive.

American Samoa is signed up to it. How expensive would it be to link up with American Samoa on the Hawaiki cable?

If Samoa had both Tui Samoa and the Hawaiki cable, it would have some of the best internet infrastructure in the south pacific.
