Facebook and others invest in 6,214-mile Asia-Pacific undersea internet cable, friend request lag to plummet
It’s just about come to be a truism that internet links from the Asia-Pacific area to the rest of the world can be slow-moving and lag-ridden, but that assumption is about to be knocked flat if Facebook and others in a Time Dotcom-led consortium have their means. The alliance is investing an integrated $ 450 million into the Asia Pacific Gateway, a 6,214-mile undersea cable television that will run between Japan, Malaysia and South Korea. The fiber optic pipe will not only help decrease the demand to route big volumes of traffic through Singapore but, in several cases, deliver much of that traffic straight to American coasts– a significant assistance when Facebook and much of the internet business still hosts most of its content on the Eastern side of the ocean. Although faster speeds won’t be in location till the summer time of 2014, by which aim the even more direct connections may be positively required, it still gives hope to those of us who would like to poke buddies and upload photos in record time.
