The Governments of the Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati and Nauru have proposed their joint participation in a regional fibre optic cable system to link the FSM island state of Kosrae, and the island nations of Kiribati and Nauru, to the existing Hannon-Armstrong (HANTRU)-1 cable which currently connects the FSM state of Pohnpei to Guam. The proposed multi-national cable system is known as the East Micronesia Cable (EMC).
