Submarine Cables in the World [Interactive Map]

If you are in any way related to telecom, Information Technology, Education or related departments – then there are chances that you might have wanted to know the most about submarine cables, lying deep in the seas, of the world.

Just in case if you aren’t familiar, submarine cables are laid under the sea to carry voice and data communication signals across the stretches of oceans. They are considered most viable, price efficient and productive way of communication between countries or regions.

Almost every country – other than those who don’t have sea ports – are connected with submarine cables to get in touch with the rest of the world.

Pakistan, for instance, is connected with four submarine cables, which are:

  • IMEWE
  • SeaMeWe3
  • SeaMeWe4
  • Transworld (TW1)

      One of the greatest things about the Internet is that nobody really owns it. It is a global collection of networks, both big and small. These networks connect together in many different ways to form the single entity that we know as the Internet. In fact, the very name comes from this idea of interconnected networks.

    if we are connected to 4 cables and then why we still experience the internet speed and surfing problem when the cable is broken.

    We have only one landing point, it should be redundant.

  • Muhammad Anas

    Gawader Port Should also have landing point.

  • Baaghi

    Of Course, a backup landing point should also be in place.
