Google to build new undersea cable linking US, UK and Spain

Tuesday 28 July 2020 | 12:16 CET | News
Google has unveiled plans to build what will be its fourth wholly-owned cable and its second linking Europe and the US. The new Grace Hopper undersea cable between the US, UK and Spain – with landing points in New York, Bude and Bilbao – will be built by SubCom and is expected to be completed in 2022. It's named after the computer science pioneer whose work was critical in the development of the COBOL programming language.
