It is now threatening to start its own wireless carrier. And it getting ready to hire ships that will lay a data communications cable across the Pacific, according to a report from Communications Day, an Australian trade news service.
Google would plan to be part of a project called Unity that would also include several telecommunications companies, that hopes to have a cable in service by 2009, the publication wrote. It would own a dedicated portion of the multi-terabit cable, giving it a significant cost advantage for trans-Pacific data transmission over rival Internet companies.

Ummm, that's a rather big piece of news, don't you think? This just sounds so Google...

Trans-Pacific Multi-Terabit Cable

Verizon is also in the race...

Verizon Business building $500 million terabit cable to China

This new system, to be named Trans-Pacific Express (TPE), will provide greater capacity and higher speeds to meet the increase in demand for IP, data and voice communications within the fast-growing Asia Pacific region.

The Great Trans-Global Cable Race is on...

Google is going to smoke em' all. I'm sure Verizon and whomever else is delving into this space are shakin' in them boots right about now. :)
