Facebook (FB) joins Google (GOOG) and a number of Asian carriers in backing the Asia-Pacific Gateway, an initiative aimed at building a giant undersea fiber network linking the region's major economies. The news arrives shortly after Facebook said it would build its own content delivery network, and comes in a year when the company plans to nearly triple its capex to $1.7B.
