Google is backing Indigo, a new undersea cable between Asia and Australia

The new 5,600-mile Indigo cable will have an 18Tbps capacity and will be online in mid-2019, Michael Francois, Google’s internet infrastructure development partnerships manager for Australia, and Brian Quigley, Google director of global network infrastructure, wrote in a blog post. Alcatel Submarine Networks, a division of Nokia, will lay the cable across the Indian Ocean, they wrote. – Jordan Novet, VentureBeat
