ATISA, a Chamorro word meaning “to increase the speed; the glow of light, to illuminate” is the official name given to the undersea cable project between Guam and the CNMI.

The $25 million dollar project will enable DOCOMO PACIFIC to offer new and sustainable wireless, cable television, home television and broadband services.

NEC Corporation is the company selected to complete ATISA, which will consist of a state of the art six pair optical fiber submarine cable measuring approximately 175 miles in length and connect the islands of Guam, Saipan, Rota and Tinian.

Completion of ATISA is anticipated towards the latter part of 2017.
