Repairing the 827 kilometre fibre-optic communications cable that connects Tonga to the outside world, if it was damaged by Saturday’s volcanic eruption, will present a ‘significant challenge’ says Australia’s Foreign Minister Marise Payne.
Phone and internet communications to and from Tonga have been extremely limited after the volcanic eruption and tsunami at Hunga Tonga–Hunga Haʻapai island.
“If this is the case that there is damage to the submarine cable, then that is obviously a significant challenge for repair work. We’ll work closely with all of our partners to provide whatever assistance we can, including the commercial providers of the submarine cable. And also to see what else is there to support in communications support” – Marise Payne.
