Discover the Tangible Effects of the “Subsea Cold War”


By Kristin LeeSep 13, 2023


The geopolitical struggle between China and the U.S. has had a major impact on the submarine cable industry.

Many cables have experienced regulatory delays, and governments are seeking to influence the routing of new cables and the choice of cable suppliers.

Are we headed into a future with two separate networks—one U.S.-backed and the other China-backed?

For this year's Submarine Networks World keynote session, TeleGeography Research Director Alan Mauldin will focus on the tangible effects this so-called “Subsea Cold War” is having on network deployment, interconnection hubs, and capacity pricing.

Conference attendees can catch the presentation live in Singapore at 10:50 a.m. on September 28. 🎁 If you haven't registered yet, use our code SNTELEG10 to get 10% off.
