We're pleased to introduce the 2016 edition of our Middle East Telecommunications Map, sponsored by Telecom Egypt. The map focuses on 17 countries in the Middle East and depicts all submarine cables that are currently active in the region, as well as cables that in advanced stages of planning. The latest data are presented on the map and inset infographics with an eye-catching new design. Take your first look at the new map now.
