So if your boat sinks at least you have the knowledge that you are heading for the bottom and the internet.

This kinda surprised me, I did not know there are that many.

All those cables need to be updated because they're very old and the transfer speed is not as good as it COULD be. Right now the latency across the Atlantic is about 100ms. According to information that I've read over the years more modern cables would easily cut that latency in HALF. It's obviously a cost issue at the end of the day. I'm hoping that within the next 5-10 years those cables will all have been replaced!

This video reminded me of one from a few years ago about an undersea pipeline.....
