Google Inks Another Undersea Internet Cable Deal

KDDI, Bharti Airtel, Reliance and Google yesterday signed a letter of intent to build a $400 million subsea cable between India and Japan. The 6-fiber-pair Asia-Pacific Japan Cable will have a design capacity of 17 Tbps—the highest capacity cable ever planned—and will be upgradeable to 23 Tbps, the companies said in a joint statement.
