TGN - Intra Asia Launched

It has been a while since the last PTC meeting, where some Tata people said that the TGN-IA will be launched in a matter of weeks. Yes, sure, what's the problem? we can convert every time measure in "weeks" :-D ... More importantly, it has indeed been launched: "... announced that they have completed the installation, testing and commissioning of the TGN-Intra Asia (TGN-IA) Cable System. Arriving at the conclusion of a comprehensive test program, which verified compliance with all transmission requirements, the companies have completed the final step in achieving regional and global connectivity in Southeast Asia for the TGN".

However, WAN prices vary dramatically by service provider, by class of service, by location, and by technology.
