"Google's investment in the newly announced submarine cable does not come as a surprise," said Tim Stronge, vice president of research at TeleGeography, a telecom research firm.

"The strength of building is you have your own dark fiber that's allocated just to you, " Tim Stronge, vice president of research for the analysis firm Telegeography, tells IEEE Spectrum. "That means if you're Google or a company like them, you can light that whenever you want, however you want."

While owning its own cable is primarily a cost-saving measure for Google, Stronge says, it also helps the company maintain service to customers of products like Gmail in South America by making it easier for the company to mirror its U.S. data centers in in other locations. The difference may be tiny-taking around 50 milliseconds to retrieve data from a data center in Sao Paulo and 100 milliseconds to pull it off of a server in the U.S., for example-but when users expect their connections to be speedy and seamless, it doesn't go unnoticed. "You can feel that when you're using the Internet, " Stronge says.

Actually, one submarine per each cable, says Tim Stronge, researcher at TeleGeography, which tracks the commercial submarine cable industry. He says the cables run closer when they're near the shore but track different paths, especially out in the ocean.

That would make it 15 submarines for the 15 cables connecting the eastern U.S. to Europe (the 16th is going into operation soon). "And if you eliminated all the trans-Atlantic connectivity, well, there's trans-Pacific connectivity you would have to address as well. To cut all those is even more of a fanciful proposition," Stronge says.
Stronge also says that much of what regular users look for online, like videos and searches and websites, is hosted domestically and would remain unaffected even in the event of every single U.S.-connected cable going black.
"The industry is built to be robust; it's built for failure," he says.
Typically, the owners of the cable systems have to deal with cuts near the shore, caused by fishers or dragging anchors. The cables in shallow waters are often especially armored for those threats. Far in the ocean, they're just tiny fiber-optic wires inside a plastic tube, and rarely get disrupted (usually in natural disasters like earthquakes).
It costs anywhere from tens of thousands to $1 million or more to lift a deep-sea cable from the bottom of the ocean and work on it, according to Schofield and Stronge.
"Let's say some foreign entity, some evil doer, like a James Bond villain, cut every single undersea fiber-optic cable connection to the United States," says Stronge, "well, we do still have satellite."
