Marea undersea cable will deliver 160 terabits of data per second.
News from Virginia Beach Department of Economic Development

This past Friday it was announced that Microsoft, Facebook and Teléfonica subsidiary Telxius have completed construction of the highest-capacity, most advanced data cable ever to cross the Atlantic. Connecting Virginia Beach and Bilbao, Spain, and coming online early 2018, MAREA will deliver data 16 million times faster than the average home internet connection.

The massive cable, and another one connecting Virginia Beach and South America, signals that our city is at the heart of pushing the future of connectivity forward. Combined with a 100gbs local Next Generation Broadband Network and a Dominion Energy-certified data center park, Virginia Beach truly is plugged in and ready to go.
