Google will build the longest subsea internet cable in the world
Google has announced its plans to build Firmina, the longest-ever subsea cable that will connect the US with Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay. From 2023, the fibre cable will provide users in South America with improved low-latency access to Google’s portfolio of consumer and cloud services. The name of the cable was chosen to honour Brazilian abolitionist and author Maria Firmina dos Reis.
