Our 2019 Provider Connectivity Analysis is Here

TeleGeography's rankings of provider connectivity include analysis based on BGP routing tables, which govern how packets are delivered to their destinations across myriad networks as defined by autonomous system numbers (ASNs).

(Quick reminder: every network must rely on other networks to reach parts of the internet that it does not itself serve; there is no such thing as a ubiquitous internet backbone provider.)

Do Human Senses Provide the Ultimate Cap on Bandwidth?

Our thirst for bandwidth must have a ceiling. It just must.

In our first-ever user-submitted myth, Chief Engineer of the Australia-Japan Cable Phil Murphy asked our experts a tough one. If it were possible to create the ultimate VR device that delivered a fully-immersive experience—catering to all possible sensory inputs—what would the bandwidth be and would our own senses create a cap?

In short: will sensory overload dictate an eventual bandwidth ceiling?

Will Fiber Pairs Become the New Coin of the Realm?

Have you heard that submarine cable fiber pairs will eventually become a standard unit of purchase? I have. And it prompted me to roll up my sleeves and do some fact-checking.

Are people going to be buying fiber pairs? Will carriers? Enterprises?

Are Current Industry Practices Enough to Accommodate Future Capacity Requirements?

The submarine cable industry’s current practices will sustain our future capacity requirements. We definitely have enough capacity to take us well into the future. Right?

Does 70% of the World’s Internet Traffic Flow Through Virginia?

Have you heard the one about 70% of the world’s internet traffic flowing through northern Virginia? This factoid has been cited in The Washington Post and Business Insider, among other major publications and government websites.

This statistic always seemed a little unlikely to us, so we sought out a few different ways to test its validity.

Four Facts About Provider Connectivity

Every network must rely on other networks to reach parts of the internet that it does not itself serve; there is no such thing as a ubiquitous internet backbone provider.

So how do providers stack up against one another in terms of connectivity?

[Webinar] Why Should You Care About Packet Networking?

Why should submarine cable operators care about adding packet networking to their networks?
