Google announced that it will invest US $ 30 billion in improving its infrastructure in three years through the installation of new submarine cables, with which Google seeks to connect the world and provide services to its customers in the cloud.
Google expects 2019 to begin the deployment of three submarine cables: “Curie”, a private cable that connects Chile with Los Angeles; Havfrue, a consortium cable that connects the US UU To Denmark and Ireland; and the Hong Kong-Guam cable system (HK-G), a consortium cable that interconnects the main submarine communication centers in Asia.
The Curie cable (named after the renowned scientist Marie Curie) will be the first to land in Chile in almost 20 years.
Google hopes that once deployed, Curie will be the largest single data pipeline in Chile, and will serve Google users and customers in Chile and in all Latin American countries.
What does this mean for Google customers?
The new Curie cable, which links San Francisco directly to Chile, is part of a series of investments that expand Google’s network, which today has more than 100 points of presence and more than 7,500 edge cache nodes.
The new investments of the technological giant will allow to achieve a faster and more reliable connectivity for all the users in the world.
“Our cable systems provide the speed, capacity and reliability for which Google is recognized throughout the world, and in Google Cloud, our customers can make use of the same network infrastructure that drives Google’s own services.” The company said in a statement.
