Three biggest companies Microsoft, Facebook and Telefonica are covering the subsea cables with a data transferring of 160 Terabits per second capacity. Facebook and Microsoft are placing the subsea cable by the help of Telefonica and almost had finished the 6600 km to all across the Atlantic Ocean from Virginia, Virginia Beach to northern Spain in Bilbao. In August 2016, Telexius began the construction for cables.

Marae also connects to nearby Sopelana, which links up with fiber networks connecting to other major European hubs like Paris, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, and London. Using a Facebook-owned transatlantic cable. With a novel technique, the subsea efficiency of 2.5 times going to be greater, according to the Nokia report.
