💥 What’s the Big Deal:

The article by Bannerman (2024) reveals that Google has announced the Central Pacific Connect initiative, which aims to improve the internet connectivity and resilience of the Pacific region.🌐The initiative involves the construction of two new subsea cables: the Echo cable, which will connect the US, Guam, and Indonesia; and the Bifrost cable, which will connect the US, Guam, and Palau.🚀 The cables will use the latest optical fiber technology and have a combined capacity of over 100 terabits per second.

Internet connectivity is a key enabler of economic and social development for the Pacific region, especially in the face of global challenges such as climate change, health crises, and digital divide.🌟By participating in the Central Pacific Connect initiative, the Pacific region can enhance its internet speed, reliability, and diversity, and reduce its dependence on satellite and existing subsea cables.🙌The initiative can also support the region’s digital transformation, innovation, and inclusion, and enable more people to access online services, opportunities, and information.
