Google has announced its first private trans-Atlantic cable, with landings at Virginia Beach in the US and on the French Atlantic coast.
Named Dunant (after Henry Dunant, founder of the Red Cross), the cable will go overland to follow a terrestrial link to the Chocolate Factory's cloud region in Belgium. At the US end, the cable will serve the Google Cloud Virginia region.

As Google noted in its post announcing the cable, the Atlantic is home to one of the world's busiest submarine cable routes. Telegeography's submarine cable map shows 19 individual in-service or planned routes for the North Atlantic, and Google already uses capacity on six of those.
The cable will be constructed by TE SubCom, and is expected to enter service in 2020.
