French Polynesia may be linked to a cable planned between South America and Australia.

The OPT telecommunications company said discussions were continuing with Chile to consider a hook-up for French Polynesia.

Last month, reports suggested that the planned cable would be laid between Chile, New Zealand and Australia but bypassing French Polynesia.

However, the OPT said a decision was not expected before December.

The project is a modification of an earlier plan which was to link Chile and China.
