In honor of Subsea World 2022 happening next month, let's play two truths and a lie: submarine cable edition.
One of these three statements is false:

Have you been playing the secret cable trivia hosted on our interactive submarine cable map?
If you haven’t, look for the icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the map. Submit the correct answer and you’ll be entered to win a free submarine cable map in our monthly drawing.
In February, we released the answers to our first three questions. Now it’s time to reveal a new batch of answers.
No, that wasn’t a typo. NASA is teaming up with lidar company Aeva to 3D map the moon—a tricky feat without GPS.
If you’re a map lover like us, this ought to grab your attention.
The prototype is small enough for an astronaut to wear as a backpack and able to map its surroundings in real time.
As India’s long-awaited 5G deployment draws nearer, a new pilot program may prompt you to look at ordinary objects—like lampposts, mailboxes, and park benches—much differently.
This program will equip street furniture with small cell networks across four different locations: Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi, Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation, Kandla Port in Gujarat, and Bhopal city.
Happy St. Patrick's Day, e-book lovers.

Before 2009, only 16 African countries were connected to a submarine cable system.
But in 2016, submarine cable capacity reached 33 countries; seven sub-Saharan countries had access to three or more systems.
Today, Africa leads the globe in international bandwidth growth. This has been facilitated by improved international connectivity along the critical Europe-to-India-and-Asia submarine corridor that connects East Africa to the rest of the world.
Our own Paul Brodsky will be joining forces with Ciena and Djibouti Telecom on March 23 at 11:00 a.m. ET for a live discussion on this topic.
But wait—there's more!
TeleGeography VP of Research Tim Stronge was on the scene to answer three questions about the submarine cable buildout boom.
2Africa has been a hot topic since it was announced in May 2020.
And if this cable is on your radar, you might be interested to know that TeleGeography's own Paul Brodsky will be moderating the panel Subsea Middle East: An Inside Look at 2Africa at Capacity Middle East next month.
Believe it or not, with 2022 comes our fifth State of the Network Report.
If this is your first State of the Network rodeo, think of this e-book as an annual telecom check-in, informed by another year of data collection and analysis from TeleGeography’s larger research portfolio.
As usual, we extract the major global bandwidth headlines, take a snapshot of the global internet, peruse the latest in data centers, check in on the cloud, and finish with an update from the voice market.
There’s no other way to put it. This State of the Network Report is a weird one.
Happy Valentine's Day to you, beloved reader. Or Discount Candy Day Eve, as some of us like to say.
Love hurts, after all. But for a recently-launched fleet of Starlink satellites, a geomagnetic storm hurts even more.
