Lucent Technologies has won a #616 million contract to supply equipment and software for Project Oxygen - a global undersea optical cable network to be built over the next four years. The network has been called a "super Internet" that will span every continent, except Antarctica, nearly doubling the mileage of today's undersea fibre-optic cable network. The goal of the project is to decrease sharply the cost of communications by increasing the available bandwidth, according to project organisers the CTR Group.
