Google is paving its own transatlantic cable to speed

It is about these intentions and the company announced on Tuesday. The cable will be named in honor of Dunant the founder and first Nobel Peace Prize laureate Henry Dunant.
Google Company expects that it will be able to use the cable already in 2020. Director, Jane Stowell strategy called route across the Atlantic the busiest. Own cable will allow to grow and develop such a product, as the Google Cloud.
As a rule, under the ocean cables lay a consortium of companies. For example, in 2016 Google teams up with Facebook for cabling between Los Angeles and Hong Kong. We were told that the process of wiring can not be called simple. But this time, the cable will be owned by Google only.
Dunant is the first transatlantic cable, which will be wholly owned by a single company. This can give Google a great advantage over competing Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services.
