Google's Asia services to be faster with new undersea cable

At the end of June, Google  FASTER, a consortium of six international companies announced that the world's fastest fibre optic undersea cable between Japan and the U.S was complete. The cable offers a bandwith of 60Tbps. Now Google has announced that its new high-speed undersea cable that links FASTER from Japan to Taiwan is now online.

The cable connects Google's largest data center in Asia located in Changua County Taiwan to Japan, at speeds of up to 26Tbps. As a result this will help Google's services like Gmail and YouTube work and load a bit faster for millions of people across Asia.

"With more people coming online every day in Asia than anywhere else in the world, we’ve been working hard to invest in the infrastructure needed to make the Internet work for all of us who live in the region." said Google in a blog post. "It’s also why we’re investing in these undersea cables – to make everyone's computing just a bit faster and to bring people around the world just a bit closer together," it added.

In order to reduce chances of network downtime during natural disasters, Google's new FASTER cables are built outside tsunami zones. Google also claims that the speed of the undersea cable is fast enough to allow every person in Taiwan to send a selfie to a friend in Japan every 15 seconds, accounting to about 138 billion selfies per day.
