    Experts predict that damage to fiber-optic cables from the Japan earthquake highlights the vulnerability of Australia's international communication links as the two cables linking Japan and the United States were damaged following the 9.0 magnitude earthquake, causing a 30 per cent slowing of bandwidth.
    Australia is heavily dependent on a network of fiber-optic cables that cross the Pacific Ocean carrying up to 99 per cent of Australia's voice and data traffic.
