Google switches on new undersea cable for faster internet speeds in Asia
#Google is speeding up its internet services in Asia once again. Fresh from expanding its data centers in the region last year — which are located in Singapore and Taiwan — the company said today that it has switched on a new undersea cable that will quicken services like YouTube and its cloud computing platform. The cable connects Google’s facility in Taiwan with a location in Japan, which itself is connected to the U.S. via an undersea cable from the FASTER Consortium which has the honor of being the planet’s fastest fiber optic undersea cable. Google said the Japan-Taiwan cable supports speeds of up to 26 terabits per second.
