|Faster internet speeds for Europe from Microsoft and Facebook|
Europe will have faster internet speeds by the end of 2017. A joint project from tech giants Microsoft and Facebook will bury a massive data cable beneath the Atlantic Ocean.
The cable will run from the US city of Virginia Beach to Bilbao in Spain's Basque Country a distance of more than 6,600 kilometres.
Microsoft needs higher speeds to connect people with its voice and video calling service Skype, as well as other Cloud-based programs
