02 November 2015 |


Finnish ICT solutions provider Cinia Group has today revealed that it has laid 200km of fibre as part of its Sea Lion data cable between Helsinki, Finland and Rostock, Germany.

The 1,170km sub-sea cable is due to complete construction in Sprint 2016, and is designed to provide direct, low-latency and secure internet connectivity between the two end-points.

“A direct data connection between Finland and Central Europe is an important enabler of both domestic economic growth and international investments,” said Eero Heliövaara, director general at the Prime Minister’s office.  

“Data traffic is expected to grow manifold within the next years and the sea cable initiative opens up an opportunity for Finland to claim its position among the leading countries in the area of Industrial internet.”

The cable-laying process began in Helsinki on October 12, 2015, and in April this year, Hetzner Online became an investor of the route
