The fastest-yet communications cable in Asia came online today (Aug. 20).
The underwater fiber optic cable links Japan, Hong Kong, the Philippines,
Malaysia and Singapore for high-speed, computerized stock trading.

The system transmits information at 40 gigabits per second, three
milliseconds faster than any other system in the region, the BBC
reported<http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-19275490>.
"The gain may sound small, but could prove critical to financial trades
made out of the region," according to the report.
