Google installs US-Chile Curie cable, announces Panama branch

Friday 15 November 2019 | 10:25 CET | News
Google has finalised installing and testing its 10,500-kilometre Curie undersea cable linking the coast of California to the port of Valparaiso in Chile around 6 months after landing. The company is now connecting the private cable to its network and expects it to begin transmitting data in the second quarter of 2020, delivering 72 Tbps of bandwidth to South America. Curie is the first subsea cable to connect to Chile in 19 years and was built in partnership with SubCom.
