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. Then, in 2019 we'll commission three subsea cables: "Curie, a private cable connecting Chile to Los Angeles; Havfrue, a consortium cable connecting the U.S.to Denmark and Ireland; and the Hong Kong-Guam Cable system (HK-G), a consortium cable interconnecting major subsea communication hubs in Asia".

He said the existing infrastructure made its network the biggest privately owned, handling about 25% of the world's Internet traffic.
"Since we control the design and construction process, we can fully define the cable's technical specifications, streamline deployment, and deliver service to users and customers faster".
The US internet behemoth has spent $30 billion improving its infrastructure during the past three years and "we're not done yet", according tocloud platform vice president Ben Treynor Sloss. The new regions and infrastructure will mean faster and reliable connectivity for Google Cloud customers, the firm said. "It will serve Google users and customers across Latin America", Sloss added.
Early work has already begun on selecting the exact route the Havfrue cable will follow. Facebook, Aqua Comms, and Bulk Infrastructure are also involved in the development of the cable, which will be built by TE Subcom and is due for completion in 2019.
While these are new submarine cables, Google is hardly a novice in the undersea cabling arena. When deployed, the cable will increase Google's network capacity in the Hong Kong region and deliver better performance and response times between Australia and major hubs in Asia, Treynor said. The first of these cables is named Curie, which is a private cable that will connect Chile to Los Angeles.
