Facebook and Microsoft Invest in Marena Fiber Cable System

Atlantic Ocean will get one more submarine fiber optic cable that will connect Spain at the European side and the Virginia state of the United States at the North American continent side. The submarine fiber cable project called Marea is built by giant web companies, Facebook and Microsoft in partnership with Telefonica. They have teamed up to build a new fiber optic cable under the Atlantic Ocean to have more control over their data transmission.
