Network Operator and Undersea Cable Profiles
TeleGeography’s Global Bandwidth Research Service profiles 384 long-haul network operators and 333 undersea cables.
Network operator profiles include network maps, a summary of cities covered, and undersea cable holdings. The profiles document carriers’ service offerings, purchase options, contact information, and company background.
Submarine cable profiles include cable maps, landing points, lit and potential capacity (by segment, where applicable), service offerings, contact information, and cable ownership information.
The Global Bandwidth Networks Database is a valuable online tool for understanding network geography and quickly identifying potential partners and rivals. Use the database to answer such questions as:
