The service will be available between Japan and the United States on July 1st, 2005, followed by a worldwide rollout linking major cities. Global Super Link is the world's first full-scale commercial service of its kind, providing enterprise users with high-speed, high-bandwidth, cost-effective global data transmission that accommodates their usage patterns.
