Submarine Cable Map
TeleGeography’s free interactive Submarine Cable Map is based on our authoritative Global Bandwidth research, and depicts active and planned submarine cable systems and their landing stations. Selecting a cable on the map projection or from the submarine cable list provides access to the cable’s profile, including the cable’s name, ready-for-service (RFS) date, length, owners, website, and landing points.
We added additional functionality to the map in September 2013, making it more comprehensive than ever. You can now:
- View a list of all cables connected to a specific country—enter “Connected to” and the country name in the search box (for example, “Connected to Australia”).
- View a list of all cables connected to a specific landing point—select the landing point on the map, or navigate to a cable’s profile and select one of its hyperlinked landing points.
- View a list of all cables that came online in a specific year—enter “Ready for service in” and the year in the search box (for example, “Ready for service in 1999”), or navigate to a cable’s profile and select its hyperlinked RFS date.
- Share data from the map. To share the URL of a cable’s profile, navigate to it and copy the URL from your browser. The URLs of country, landing point, and RFS searches are also shareable.
Cables shown on the map include international and US domestic submarine cables with a maximum upgradeable capacity of at least 5 Gbps. Cable routes are stylized to improve readability, and do not reflect the physical cable location. Similarly, cable landing stations do not show the precise coordinates of the building, and are meant to serve as a general guide to where a cable system lands.
We update our map regularly to ensure that our data are as accurate and as up-to-date as possible. If you have updated information for a cable system please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
