SEACOM is a telephone cable linking Hong Kong with Malaysia.

Its telephone link was opened in 1967.[1]

At one stage it also included the terrestrial radio microwave analogue link along the eastern coast of Australia, operated by the Postmaster-General's Department which was the forerunner of Telstra. This communication link rejoined the undersea cable section at Cairns in north Queensland.[2] [3]
