    intercontinental cable(optical fiber) capacity (thicker lines, more capacity).

    Specifically: Image: Undersea cables
    Fiber in use as of year end 2004.

    pretty obvious given who submitted it.

    99% of the worlds long distance communication is through submarine cable.


  7. The tubes that makeup the internet :)

    – Its a map of undersea fiber optic cables that carry data around the world.


  8. shyam

    Its the undersea cable map of the world !

    Simple : Undersea cable map :)


  16. Uma

    Is it the undersea optic line layout map?
