By NUNATSIAQ NEWS

This map shows the main backbone routes that Arctic Fibre Inc.'s proposed London-Tokyo marine fiber optic cable would take through Nunavut and Nunavik offshore regions. Between Aug. 19 and Aug. 24, a seven-person team from Arctic Fibre will tour the Nunavut communities located near the cable's main backbone line: Iqaluit, Cape Dorset, Hall Beach, Igloolik, Cambridge Bay, Gjoa Haven and Taloyoak. The team will meet with local leaders and study potential landing sites for cable spurs that would connect each community. After that, the team will visit Deception Bay in Nunavik to assess the viability of a backbone spur that would connect mining companies in the area.
