Facebook and Google’s Undersea Cable will Bring Internet to China

Can you imagine? Facebook and Google are making a plan to built an underwater cable to China. Both the companies are blocked in China and hence, they are investing in building an 8,000-mile ultrafast link between Los Angeles and Hong Kong. This cable will be built under the Pacific ocean. The main purpose of creating this plan is to make the services available to locals and serves as a key network hub for Asia.

There is a huge amount of data that is being handled every day for example videos and photos posted by 1.7 billion Facebook users and documents stored on Google’s servers. It is difficult to rely on telecom firms to provide the best infrastructure and hence the company came up with this plan.

The link between Los Angeles and Hong Kong will have the capacity to transfer 80 million high-definition video conference calls. Pacific Light Data Communication is the company with which Facebook and Google have associated to complete this project. The financial details of the project have not yet been released.

The new ventures of Facebook and Google are so diverse these days. They are already working with experimental tools like giant balloons and laser-equipped drones to fix the internet in remote locations. In such diverse technological world, the efforts of Facebook and Google certainly needs accolades.
