Take a look at this awesome map from the research group Telegeography. It shows more than 120 major undersea cable systems, including the longest one, which clocks in at more than 24,000 miles. The map also includes stats on the amount of data the cables carry (about two terabytes a second under the Atlantic) and a diagram of how they work.

I thought it happened last year when we got problems and slow connections. Anyway, this article is very interesting and very valuable for us for tracking whenever we get those problems in the future. Thanks for great figure.

i didnt even know we had cables in the sea until i read this article, but when i read it i thought of problems with it. i think it would be easier for us to just use sat's.
what are the electromagnetic reactions to these in reference to current change in water systems and the bio-habitat for the marine-life?
This map is amazing, and I never realized how complex the underlying structure to support the Internet as we know was. Astonishing work to pull all these cables deep undersea. I like the way Hawaii is used as a hub in the middle of the Pacific. www.born4holdem.com
