Telegeography has recently published an update of their zoomable submarine cable map with chronological information and overall lit capacity. Especially interesting for me is the the graph at the bottom which shows a sudden strong increase of used (lit) capacity in 2007 and onwards compared to previous years. To get political for a moment, I also found it quite interesting that the name of the state of Isreal is missing on the map while even small countries such as Luxembourg have their name on the map!? I wonder if that has something to do with the sponsor? Back to technology: For more detailed information on individual cables I can also recommend Greg's cable map and for some technical nuggets have a look at my post from back in January 2012.
