Submarine Cable Map

https://submarine-cable-map-2019.telegeography.com/

Have you ever thought how it is possible to talk to someone on the other side of the planet?
Because of the use of cell phones it is quite common to believe that data / voice communication around the world is done wirelessly but believe me, only a small part is transmitted in this way. A widely used medium for communication between continents and countries is submarine cables.
That’s right, as the name says, they are cables specially designed to withstand underwater conditions and allow connection to tens up to thousands of kilometers of distance between one point and another.
Although it has been a technique applied since the 19th century, the use of these cables is more advantageous than satellite links, since the climate has no impact on signal transmission and the use of optical fibers ensures greater speed and data traffic.
