From Francois Sterin's story on blogspot:
"If you're wondering whether we're going into the undersea cable business, the answer is no."

From google's press release: ...

"The new five fiber pair cable system can be expanded up to eight fiber pairs, with each fiber pair capable of carrying up to 960 Gigabits per second (Gbps)."

Does anyone know how they can expand the number of fibers once it is laid?
