APG has connection points in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
StarHub has partnered with telecommunications companies in each country to provide services for its enterprise customers requiring international connectivity to any of these overseas markets, the company explained.
“Singapore is China’s largest foreign investor. To serve Singapore enterprises expanding to China, we are pleased to provide them with a new international connectivity on APG, catering for the growing economic activities between China and Southeast Asia,” said Benjamin Tan, vice president of International Business, StarHub.
APG also enhances StarHub’s international connectivity by providing traffic routing to submarine cable systems such as Asia-Pacific Cable Network 2 (APCN2), Asia Submarine-cable Express (ASE) and Asia-America Gateway (AAG).
