Huawei, the Chinese ICT giant, is reportedly involved in plans to link Pakistan and China fibre-optically – including laying an 800-kilometre stretch of cable alongside the world-famous Karakoram Highway.

According to the Pakistani financial press, the proposed project is part of an $18 billion plan to better link the two countries with a new road and rail track aimed at creating an efficient Pakistan-China ‘economic corridor’.

The cable would link Rawalpindi, in Pakistan, to the Trans-Asia Cable in China – giving both countries different options for routing international telecom traffic. It is expected to take around three years to complete.
