  • People wait in line to enter a Google product launch event in San Francisco California

Google (GOOG, GOOGL) plans to build three underwater cables by next year to help Google Cloud reach new regions.

Now, however, Google is also developing one private cable that will run from Los Angeles to Chile.

Despite jumping in head first, Google is not entering the undersea cable business enthusiastically. Havfrue, which will connect the USA to Denmark and Ireland, will actually be the product of a partnership between Google, Facebook, Aqua Comms, and Bulk Infrastructure.

HK-G, or the Hong Kong-Guam cable system, is the third new cable that Google expects to commission in 2019. In 2008, we were the first tech company to invest in a subsea cable as a part of a consortium. The cable, dubbed Unity, was meant to address the need for broadband for data and internet traffic between Asia and the U.S. At the time, the project would add up to 7.68 Terabits per second (Tbps) of bandwidth across the Pacific.

Among these benefits is the fact that Google will be completely in charge of the cable's technical specifications, meaning it can meet the company's precise data needs. Google promises they are not done yet and there will be additional announcements of other regions.

"These new investments expand our existing cloud network". The Hong Kong-Guam Cable system (HK-G) consortium cable will connect "major subsea communication hubs" in Asia, according to Google.

A "Curie" cable connecting Chile and Los Angeles will be the first intercontinental connection of its kind not owned by a telecom company, Sloss said. These three cables will take Google's direct investments up to 11 cables, with the others including: Indigo, PLCN, Tannat, Junior, Monet, FASTER, SJC and UNITY.

"Our cable systems provide the speed, capacity and reliability Google is known for worldwide, and at Google Cloud, our customers are able to make use of the same network infrastructure that powers Google's own services".

"Also, once the cable is deployed, we can make routing decisions that optimize for latency and availability", reads another excerpt from the same January post. It will also increase the company's network capacity at our new Hong Kong region.

'From the get-go, PLCN is created to accommodate evolving infrastructure technology, allowing us to independently choose network equipment and refresh optical technology as it advances, ' the Google team wrote.
