Canadian dark fibre supplier Crosslake Fibre has announced plans to deploy a submarine cable system linking Toronto (Canada) and Buffalo (New York, US) via Lake Ontario. Crosslake claimed that the submarine cable will provide diversity from other routes between the two cities, in addition to lower latency. The submarine cable network, which will land northwest of Lockport on the US shores and close to Toronto’s downtown core on the Canadian end, is expected to be ready for service (RFS) by September 2018. Crosslake will own and operate the system as an independent operator and will offer dark fibre and managed services to enterprise and carrier customers, as well as ultra-low latency services to financial networks.
