Google and Facebook have teamed up to build an 8,000-mile undersea internet cable between Los Angeles and Hong Kong, the longest and fastest internet cable across the Pacific.

The project, a collaboration between the two internet giants, as well as Pacific Light Data Communication and TE SubCom, two telecoms companies, is intended to improve connection speeds between the two continents.

As well as improving direct speeds, they also mean more reliability for internet users, increasing the number of lanes down which data can travel. Google, Microsoft and Amazon are competing fiercely in the fast-growing cloud computing market, which allows companies to outsource infrastructure to them.
