Google’s $300 million trans-pacific ‘FASTER’ cable is ready to use.
The cable, first announced about one year ago, brings up to 60Tbps (Terabits per second) Internet speed between Japan and the US. The cable will surface in Oregon and two posts in Japan: Chiba and Mie prefectures.
From those points, the cable will provide service to major cities. Stateside, Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area, Portland and Seattle will benefit from FASTER.
