A trans-Pacific cable could be ready to launch in 2009, connecting Google to Asia and the Pacific while delivering a significant cost savings to the company.

Google is in mostly-denial mode as news of its advancing plans to delve deep into the waters of the Pacific with a multi-terabit cable has swept the Internet.

Communications Day claimed in its story that Google and other carriers would join together to rollout the “Unity” cable. Planning meetings have happened as recently as last week.

How close is Google to slinging some major bandwidth under the sea? They aren’t saying:

Google would not strictly confirm or deny the existence of the Unity plan today, with spokesman Barry Schnitt telling our North American correspondent Patrick Neighly that “Additional infrastructure for the Internet is good for users and there are a number of proposals to add a Pacific submarine cable. We’re not commenting on any of these plans.”

Job listings for strategic negotiators skilled in working on issues related to submarine networks began appearing online at the end of July. We’re going to suggest Google found who they were looking for to serve in this position.
