Is a Mass Extinction of Submarine Cables Looming?

The rapid pace of demand growth is only going to require more international bandwidth in the coming years. While there's certainly lots of investment in new systems, cables built in the late 1990s and early 2000s continue to play a key role in global connectivity. But are their days numbered?  

It seems more likely than ever that some of these cables will begin to go "extinct" in the near future as they are retired from service.

Happy Anniversary to the AC-1: A Twenty Year Retrospective at Subsea EMEA

Full city-to-city connectivity! A link between Europe and the U.S.! 

Did you catch what's so interesting about that language?
