The Submarine Cable Map provided by TeleGeography is one of the most interesting charts around. It shows the continued spread of international fiber – effectively the nerve system for the world’s data centers. The presence and quality of fiber available can create new tech clusters. It’s connectivity on land that made Virginia such a key location in the US, as much as the availability of power. And in Asia, cables snaking between Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, Korea and other nations, have become prizes to be wooed and won.
