MUMBAI -- Indian mobile communications company Reliance Jio Infocomm has debuted a 25,000km undersea cable connecting Asia, Africa and Europe in a bid to keep pace with demand for data.

The cable links the French city of Marseille with Hong Kong and travels through four seas -- the South China, Arabian, Red and Mediterranean -- in what is reportedly one of the largest such projects of the past 15 years.
