Google plans to commission the three subsea cables in 2019, the internet giant said in a blog post. The subsea cables include: Curie, a private cable connecting Chile to Los Angeles; Havfrue, a consortium cable connecting the United States to Denmark and Ireland; and Hong Kong-Guam Cable system, a consortium cable interconnecting major subsea communication hubs in Asia.
Subsea cables form the backbone of the internet by carrying more than 90 percent of the world’s data traffic. The companies setting up the cables include TE SubCom, a unit of NYSE-listed TE Connectivity Ltd, and Tokyo-listed NEC Corp, Google said. The company said it has direct investment in 11 cables, including those planned or under construction.
