Google now has direct ownership in as many as eight other undersea cables linking its various data centers around the world.

Starting with the regions, the Netherlands and Montreal will be opened up in the first quarter, while Los Angeles, Finland, and Hong Kong will follow later on in the year.

Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) plans to commission the three subsea cables in 2019, the internet giant said in a blog post. Google boasts that it will be the first new cable to land in Chile in nearly 20 years and will serve Google customers across Latin America. Curie will become Chile's main data pipeline and will serve users all across Latin America. Further, Treynor noted that after the cables are operational, they can easily make routing decisions to optimize for latency and availability.

Coleman quit the post in November after Wales failed to make the World Cup and his replacement is keen to get started. He also holds the record for the most assists in Premier League history, with 271.

Google Cloud's current global network covers 100 points of presence and 7500 edge-catching nodes.

In another first among operators of the biggest cloud platforms, the company will fund the construction of one of these cables entirely on its own.

Havfrue, the cable running from the Denmark and Ireland, will boost capacity for North Atlantic customers.

Australia is set to benefit from the Hong Kong-Guam Cable system, a consortium cable interconnecting major subsea communication hubs in Asia, with multiple scalable, diverse paths to Australia. Google is working with NEC and RTI-C on the HK-G cable.

Google has launched several new regions in recent months as it seeks to keep pace with public cloud rivals such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and IBM Cloud. These three cables will take Google's direct investments up to 11 cables, with the others including: Indigo, PLCN, Tannat, Junior, Monet, FASTER, SJC and UNITY. The investments have helped Google build an infrastructure that it claims offers better speed, reliability and security than other cloud providers.

Other companies have built their own cables too: in September previous year, Microsoft announced that it had completed construction of the Marea subsea cable, a joint project with Facebook and global telecommunications infrastructure company Telxius.

Grace says she complimented his marble countertops. "That last hour was so out of my hand", Grace says. It also corroborated Grace's account with her roommate, who had spoken to her the morning after.

Those who live in these regions, according to Google, should be excited.
