New Undersea cable for Google

I have been posting regularly about undersea cables and also about Google's transmission capabilities. This item combines both. As we consider incentives and motivations, why would Google, an information provider, invest in infrastructure the way that they do?

when I first heard about this news last week I was shocked: why would such a company "content provider" even care about the notwork capacity, it is completely non of its business even its applications are such a lightweight ones! Well when I slow down & think about it and watching what services google introduces day after day which moves the users from relying on the local operating system, mail client or spreadsheets ...etc to a web-based versions, in addition to acquiring other companies like youtube which requires a huge bandwidth...I start to realize how google strategy works!
