Aqua Comms is a leading carrier-neutral owner and operator of subsea fibre systems. Its cables benefit from a long-established customer base of global tech and global telecoms carriers. Aqua Comms is the owner and operator of 15,000km America Europe Connect-1 (AEC-1), America Europe Connect-2 (AEC-2), and CeltixConnect-1 (CC-1). Three new systems will come online in 2022: America Europe Connect-3 (AEC-3), CeltixConnect-2 (CC-2) and North Sea Connect (NSC), expanding Aqua Comms network to 20,000km.

In July 2021, D9 entered into definitive agreements to deploy a further £50 million over a three-year period into the development of a new 10,000km intercontinental fibre system, alongside a leading global content provider. The new system is an innovative, carrier-neutral network platform between Europe, the Middle-east and India comprising subsea and terrestrial fibre assets which will connect key locations in these regions. Aqua Comms markets and operates this route under the name Europe Middle-East India Connect 1 (EMIC-1).
