Google (GOOGL) said Tuesday it plans to add three new undersea cables next year as part of a broader effort to improve and expand its cloud computing services.

Google is adding network capabilities in Netherlands, Montreal, Finland, Hong Kong and Los Angeles this year, according to Sloss. Google recommends customers deploy applications across multiple zones and regions to help protect against unexpected failures.

Google also announced plans for three new undersea cables that will connect its data centers around the world.

The Havfrue cable will link the United States with Denmark and Ireland, while the Hong Kong Guam cable system (HK-G) will provide better connections between hubs in Asia and open new routes to Australia.

"Since we control the design and construction process, we can fully define the cable's technical specifications, streamline deployment, and deliver service to users and customers faster".

Its "Curie" cable, named after legendary physicist Marie Curie, will run from Chile to Los Angeles and be privately owned by Google and its parent company, Alphabet.

There are three terms in the year, so that costs families around £9,150, or about $12,200, per year. Charlotte's school is located near the school that her brother, Prince George , attends in London.

"Once deployed, Curie will be Chile's largest single data pipe", said Benjamin Treynor, vice president of Google 24x7 cloud support group in a blog January 16.

One of the cables will be entirely Google owned and will connect Los Angeles to Chile.

It will cost Google hundreds of millions of dollars and take more than a year to lay the new cables.

The second cable, called the Havfrue (Danish for "mermaid") cable will run from the east coast of the USA to Denmark and come online at the end of next year.

PayPal is one company that will leverage Google's network and infrastructure. The new regions and infrastructure will mean faster and reliable connectivity for Google Cloud customers, the firm said. Facebook, Aqua Comms, and Bulk Infrastructure are also involved in the development of the cable, which will be built by TE Subcom and is due for completion in 2019. It will also increase the company's network capacity at their new Hong Kong region.

Google has direct investment in a total of 11 cables, including these upcoming projects. Further, Treynor noted that after the cables are operational, they can easily make routing decisions to optimize for latency and availability.
