Google Links US and Chile via Curie Subsea Cable

Alphabet Inc. (Google) has delivered a 10,000 kilometer long subsea link between Los Angeles in the US and Valparaiso in Chile.

The Curie cable, named in honor of science pioneer Marie Skłodowska Curie, was completed earlier this week with landing in Valparaíso.

Equinix was selected for Los Angeles area cable landing station.

Subsea cable company SubCom executed the project, following a contract award to design, deploy and launch the Curie submarine cable system back in January 2018.

Chilean Minister of Transport and Telecommunications Gloria Hutt received the fiber-optic cable, which is the first submarine cable that arrives in the country in almost 20 years.

The four-fibre pair system will add dedicated capacity to Google’s global network, enabling interconnection to other infrastructure in the region.
