Google Cloud Platform Blog: Big data, big bandwidth: this week on Google Cloud Platform

From a Google Cloud Platform news summary

"But the really big news was the undersea FASTER Cable System, which Google and consortium members turned on this week. Google invested $300 million to lay this 9,000km fibre optic cable, which, when fully lit, will carry 10 terabits of data from Oregon and Japan. To put that into context, that’s about 10 million times faster than the average cable modem. Further, FASTER puts the total number of operational, Google-owned undersea cables up to four — four more than any other technology company can lay claim to."
