Google plans to boost cloud business to catch up to Amazon, Microsoft

Google plans to build three new submarine cables to plug into new regions around the world, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The subsea fiber optic cables are intended to speed up Google's cloud-computing business as it looks to catch up to Amazon and Microsoft, which each have more cloud-computing revenue than Google, according to WSJ.

Google's new cables will help connect five new regions for its cloud customers in Los Angeles, Finland, Hong Kong, the Netherlands and Montreal.
