Google Grace Hopper, a subsea cable that is 3,900-miles long, has now reached the United Kingdom. This massive wire named after the pioneering computer scientist, Grace Hopper, is expected to connect the United States, the United Kingdom, and Spain.
"The cable will improve the resilience of the Google network that underpins our consumer and enterprise products," said that giant search engine company via its official blog post.
On the other hand, the tech giant firm confirmed that its new giant cable would enhance the company's network so that consumers could communicate with their loved ones and friends more efficiently.
Thanks to Google's innovation, many people can now contact other individuals from point A to point B smoother and easier. This would help a lot of users since they are unable to visit their families because of the current COVID-19 restrictions implemented by various governments across the globe.
Google's Grace Hopper Subsea Cable
According to CNET's latest report, Google's latest Grace Hopper cable represents a new generation of trans-Atlantic cable. Jane Stowell, the strategic negotiator of a global infrastructure for Google, explained that the company started to work on this massive wire back in 2003.
