Google to build new undersea cable in Asia and Australia


If you live in Japan, Guam, or Australia, your internet may be about to get faster. 

Google has announced that it has invested in a new undersea cable: the Japan-Guam-Australia (JGA) Cable System. 

The cable will connect Tokyo and Osaka to Guam, and Guam to Sydney. It will stretch nearly 6000 miles in total, and is set to be completed in 2019. 

Google is invested in JGA's southern segment, which connects Guam to Sydney, in addition to Australian ISP AARNet, and undersea cable manufacturer RTI-C.
