Google has joined forces with a number of Asian telecoms giants to deploy the world’s fastest trans-Pacific submarine cable. The cable, which is lumbered with the rather unimaginative name “Faster,” will have an initial capacity of 60 terabits per second. Faster (it’s not even an acronym!) will provide an important highspeed link from the west coast of the US to landing points in Japan, and then on to rapidly growing markets in China, India, Indonesia, and other Asian countries. The cable will be deployed by NEC at a total cost of $300 million. Faster, which gets its name from the fact that it’s faster than other trans-Pacific cables, will run from Portland in the US to Chikura and Shima in Japan.
