Google Builds Three New Underwater Cables to Expand Its Cloud Business

Google said on Tuesday it was adding three new data cables under the sea as it continues to strengthen its ability to power cloud services worldwide. The US Internet has spent $30 billion on improving its infrastructure over the past three years and said: “We are not done yet,” according to vice president of the cloud platform Bin Trinor Sloss.

Internet connections have become fast and reliable imperative such as gaming, social networking, television, financial transactions, documents and more are accessed as hosted online services in data centres. “Simply put, our cable systems provide the speed, capacity and reliability Google is known for worldwide,” Sloss said in a blog post.

Google and Amazon have been competing on which platform companies can deal with cloud offerings Google is adding network capabilities in the Netherlands, Montreal, Finland, Hong Kong and Los Angeles this year, according to Sloos, and next year Google will commission three cables under the sea.

A ‘Curie’ cable connecting Chile and Los Angeles will be the first intercontinental connection of its kind not owned by a telecom company, Sloss said.

Google will work with leading social network Facebook and other companies on a “Havfrue” cable linking the US with Denmark and Ireland.

A Hong Kong-Guam cable system in the Pacific Ocean will improve capacity between Australian and locations in Asia, according to Google.

“Together, these investments further improve our network – the world’s largest – which by some accounts delivers 25 percent of worldwide internet traffic,” Sloss said.
