At Google we want our products to be fast and reliable, and that requires a great network infrastructure, whether it's for the more than a billion Android users or developers building products on Google Cloud Platform. And sometimes the fastest path requires going through an ocean. That’s why we’re investing in FASTER, a new undersea cable that will connect major West Coast cities in the US to two coastal locations in Japan with a design capacity of 60 Tbps (that's about ten million times faster than your cable modem). Along with our previous investments - UNITY in 2008 and SJC (South-East Asia Japan Cable) in 2011, FASTER will make the internet, well, faster and more reliable for our users in Asia.

These undersea cables always fascinate me. Great news! 
OK google, send a beep every time dark fiber is used for debugging. :P
Would you please releasing a map of underseas cables because the internet connection has been disconnected by ships at Persian gulf many times.
Good job Google! You're the best ☑ 
Thanks for this! Great job.
Two questions: How much capacity will be initially lit? Does each consortium partner have one of the 6 fibre pairs or will they share the total capacity?
This new cable is a six pair cable. The old Unity cable (similar route) is a five pair cable and is three years old. Unity capacity is 7.68 Tbit/s compared to the new cable's 60 Tbit/s. How was this jump in capacity achieved? And can't the laser modules of the Unity cable be upgraded?
Hmm, great, so we'll work remotely in a more comfortable way.nice. 
Don't forget about Hawaii! It would be a great stop for this cable
Sir this Internet connection able in India (kolkata)?
