Google Begins Using New Undersea Cable Across Asia

Google starts using its new undersea cable to speed up Internet services in Asia. "Back in June, the six-member FASTER Consortium began beaming light through the FASTER cable, the world's fastest fiber optic undersea cable to date, which connects the United States and Japan," writes Yan Tang, Google's Network Resource APAC Regional Lead. "We wanted to spread this lightning fast connectivity a little bit farther ... So, to extend the benefits of this Trans-Pacific link to the rest of Asia, we invested in a cable that links FASTER in Japan on to Taiwan, where our largest data center in Asia provides millions of people across Asia with quick access to our tools and services, at speeds of up to 26 terabits per second."
