A Look at the Google–Owned Undersea Cable Between South Africa and Europe

This IDC Market Note looks at Google's decision to invest in a new undersea cable linking South Africa and Europe. It also assesses the likely impact of this strategic decision on South Africa's telecommunications industry and examines the existing supply of international bandwidth in the country."Google's plan to deploy an undersea cable linking Africa and Europe is indicative of an overall trend by hyperscale players to invest in underlying infrastructure, as the services of these players greatly rely on the resilience of such infrastructure. Other hyperscale players like Amazon and Facebook are likely to follow suit." — Senior Analyst Mervin Miemoukanda, IDC South Africa
