The connectivity within our beloved city shall further be strengthened through the domestic submarine cable network (DSCN).
This project will boost signal connectivity, inter island bigger data capacity and reliable internet connection. The submarine fiber optic connections shall be coming from Cebu, and the landing area is in Brgy. Ubujan.
The pipes from Ubujan will then be connected to its main hub in J.A. Clarin St. The route will be from Tomas Cloma St going to Cabalit St. then proceeding to Calceta St. and finally at its main hub in J.A. Clarin St.
After landing at Brgy. Ubujan, to ensure the success of the project, an open trench and horizontal directional drilling shall be conducted in between the manholes created.
