Improving the Internet undersea connections

Have we got enough infrastructure for all the new mobile devices? Are we prepared for that?

Of course, from Spain I mean! I can imagine that you have read about the new massive undersea cable, which Microsoft and Facebook are going to build between Virginia Beach, USA, and Bilbao, Spain (some pieces of news: in Spanish by ElPais.es, and in English by USAtoday.com). That is the reason why I am going to write about that. As software developer, maybe it is not interesting for us, but it is pretty important in order to have a powerful software “on the cloud”.

Of course, in order to connect Europe with USA, it is only possible do it by sea (undersea, of course), and Spain was using the connections with the rest of Europe (France, UK, …), which are connected with the USA. In fact, Spain has a direct connection with the USA (the Submarine Cable called Columbus-III), which connect Florida (USA) with Conil, in the south of Spain (and other places in Portugal and Italy), but it is not good enough for all the connections between both countries.

By the moment, you can see the current undersea connections on this website, submarinecablemap.com, which will be improved during the next years with the new connections.
