[319-4] Submarine Fiber Optic Network, 2011

Since the year 2000, over 80% of international data volume has been transmitted using deep sea cables. Although they are more wiretap proof, they are more susceptible to damage than satellite links. Earth quakes, anchors and even sharks endanger the transfer of data. The breadth of the lines is proportional to the transmission capacity.  Thick black tape highlights the most used telecommunication lines.
