Googles transatlantiska undervattenskabel, som fått namnet Grace Hopper, har nu kommit nått land och Europa i Bude, Storbritannien.

Kabeln ska nu dras vidare till Bilbao i Spanien och det är den första Karleby av den här typen som dragits hemland kontinenterna sedan 2003.

Once operational, it would have the capacity to handle ”17.5 million people streaming 4K video concurrently”, Google bosses said.

The cable has been laid between New York in the United States, Bilbao in Spain and Bude over several months, and is expected to be operational in 2022.

It was part of a ”new generation” of lines that ”connect continents along the ocean floor with an additional layer of security beyond what’s available over the public internet”, Google said.
