Google’s world dominance is not yet over and the company has partnered with few telcos to bring fast Internet cable running under Pacific Ocean from US to Japan – thereby increasing the bandwidth by 20%.
The Unity Consortium, which consists of Google, Bharti Airtel, Global Transit, KDDI, Pacnet, and SingTel, has nearly completed the testing of the $300 million project. Internet users in Asia will start seeing faster Internet speeds over the next several months from the new cable, which has the potential to create a 7.68Tbps (terabits per second) connection under the Pacific. – cnet
As part of this project, Google is expected to get 20% of the overall capacity generated to suit its needs.
