Google announced Wednesday it's planning to lay a giant undersea cable running from the US to almost the bottom of South America.
The cable, which Google has dubbed "Firmina" after Brazilian author Maria Firmina dos Reis, will run from the East Coast of the US down to the town of Las Toninas in Argentina, with stop-off points along the way in Brazil and Uruguay.Google also said the cable will be capable of running on just a single power source, so if the power goes out at one end it won't shut down. According to Google, Firmina will be the longest cable in the world capable on running on single-source power.
Google has already laid thousands of miles of undersea cables around the world, and announced in March that, together with Facebook, it's funding two new cables running from the US West Coast to Singapore and Indonesia. In July 2020 it announced it was laying an undersea cable connecting up New York with the UK and Spain.
