Australia - PNG undersea cable to boost Internet speed

Papua New Guinea's internet speed and reliability will soon get a major boost from a new under water telecommunications cable linking Australia and Port Moresby.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and his PNG counterpart Peter O'Neill discussed the plans on the sidelines of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation leaders summit in Vietnam.

O'Neill said the new cable will help improve business links between the two countries as well as benefit schools and the healthcare system.

Australia has also been in talks with the Solomon Islands government about a similar project.
