- Submarine cable map.
Neal Stephenson wrote a really good non-fiction thing about the cable business – it’s in his non-fiction book, can’t remember the name.
The first one, TAT-1, isn’t on there – that terminated in a lovely out-of-the-way corner of Appin. Keep meaning to go for a look but got disctracted by a giant silica quarry.Posted 4 years agobigjimSubscriber

I doubt they mirror everything. I am sure they’d like to, but it’d be physically impossible. Even Google only caches some websites.
I mean mirror as in mirror port on a router. Apparently the do process everything, but just store meta data for a lot of it. This all came out in the Snowdon releases…Posted 4 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber
Surprised there isn’t one going to Antarctica. If i was going to be stuck in a remote research station for endless dark nights with sub-god knows what temperatures outside, the one thing i’d demand was a high quality cable connection so i could stream my grumble without buffering it.Posted 4 years agobencooperMember
They have their own ways of entertaining themselves in Antarctica:

And this is what happens to cable maintenance ships when they are no longer required.
