Google brings Faster undersea cable online in Asia

Wednesday 7 September 2016 | 07:21 CET | News
Google reports it has started bringing the new 'Faster' high-speed undersea cable online in Asia. Back in June, the 6-member Faster Consortium began beaming light through the Faster fiber optic undersea cable connecting the US and Japan. To extend the benefits of this Trans-Pacific link to the rest of Asia, Google says it has invested in a cable that links Faster in Japan on to Taiwan, where Google's Asian data centre provides Asian customers with access to Google tools and services, at speeds of up to 26 Tbps.
