On this page I collect links to maps of transpacific cables. To be on this list, a cable system should still be in service and should either connect either North or South America with either Asia or Australia/New Zealand or major islands in between. It does not include intra-Asia/Australia/Oceania maps at this time. 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. Because many operators use these cables, you can also obviously see these routes embedded in many international networking maps.
|Asia America Gateway (AAG)||Operator Map|
|C2C (See also Pacnet maps)||Wikipedia Map|
|Japan-US||Third Party Map|
|Pacific Crossing (PC-1, now owned by NTT)||Operator Map|
|Southern Cross Cable System||Operator Map|
|Unity (See also Pacnet, KDDI, Singtel maps)||Third Party Map|
|TGN Pacific (See also Tata Communications map)||Third Party Map|
|TPC-5||Partial via third party|
|Trans Pacific Express (TPE)||Wikipedia 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.
“Tata Transpacific” is TGN-Pacific (incidentally, now the highest lit capacity submarine cable system in the world at over 3Tb/s).
I have made that change, thanks!
