On this page I collect links to maps of transatlantic cables. To be on this list, a cable system should still be in service and should either connect Europe and North America or major islands in between. It does not include the Caribbean nor the Mediterranean, which will be collected on parallel pages. I prefer to collect links to maps provided by the operator of the cable, but where necessary I am including links to maps on Wikipedia or from third parties. As always, some operators have large interactive maps that include their entire international holdings, rather than a specific cable map. In those cases I point to the international maps page, but I would rather have a more specific link if it is available.
|Aqua Comms||AEC-1, AEC-2|
|Greenland Connect||third party map|
|FARICE, DANICE||operator map|
|South Atlantic Express||Wikipedia map, proposed|
|AC-1||See Global Crossing Int’l Map|
|Yellow/AC-2||See Level 3, Global Crossing Int’l Maps|
|TGN Atlantic||See Tata Int’l Map|
|Flag Atlantic-1||See Reliance Globalcom Map|
As always, this list is a work in progress and is meant to be inclusive. If you know of any cables that ought to be on this list, please send it me or just leave a comment below.
Please note that Apollo SCS is a private system and not a consortia system as listed.
Dan Hughes (Apollo SCS Ltd),
I have corrected the table accordingly. Thanks for the clarification Dan!
Please note that TGN atlantic is currently known by VSNL Transatlantic
This is incorrect. All the legacy VSNL cables were renamed in February 2008 to align with the rebranding to Tata Communications. (TGN now = Tata Global Network instead of Tyco Global Network.)
The full list is :
TGN Eurasia (under construction)
TGN Gulf (under construction)
TGN Western European Ring
TGN Northern European Ring
and TIC, the legacy Tata Indicom Cable, which I understand is to be renamed to align with the rest of the cable systems.

Thanks Steve, I have updated the link. I also took the opportunity to belatedly add maps for the proposed Emerald Express, WASACE, and South Atlantic Express cables.
