Submarine Cable

Hundreds of submarine communications cables have been laid since the early attempts of the 1840s and the first commercially successful cable, the England to France link of 1851.

Bill Glover's ongoing project presents a comprehensive time line of all major cables and many of the minor ones, with links to cable sample images, company descriptions, and cableship histories.
A chronological record of every major submarine communications cable.
