MOSCOW, August 2 (Itar-Tass) — Rostelecom has completed the installation of the last section of the fibre-optic communication line, connecting Vladivostok and the Russky Island. The company reported on Thursday that the line with the total length of 15 kilometres will ensure uninterrupted communication during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum’s summit.

It said that the installed data transmission system can ensure traffic up to 40 Gbit per second, which “will provide high-quality communication even during peak loads on the network during the APEC summit in Vladivostok in September this year.” Rostelecom’s investments in the project have amounted to 11.2 million roubles.
