The two companies touted the projects as helping to bring reliable internet access around the world. 

“Echo and Bifrost will support further growth for hundreds of millions of people and millions of businesses. We know that economies flourish when there is widely accessible internet for people and businesses,” Facebook said in a blog post. 

Google in a post said the cable will decrease latency for users connecting to applications running the Google Cloud Platform in the area. 

Echo is expected to be ready for service in 2023, Google said. The goal is for Bifrost to be completed by late 2024, CNBC reported[3].
