Submarine and Terrestrial Cable Systems

Vodafone’s history in submarine cable systems dates back through centuries from our Cable & Wireless heritage since the landing of the first telegraph cable into Porthcurno.  With accumulated industry knowledge of 100 years, we continue to be one of the largest investors in submarine cable systems, currently with capacity on around 80 systems that reach 100 countries.

Our extensive, state-of-the-art submarine and terrestrial cable network is made up of some of the world’s most advanced cable systems that carry multiple terabytes per second of capacity. These technological miracles, that stretch across oceans, help to carry the world’s intercontinental data, and contribute to powering the global economy. They form the backbone for the data centres enabling connectivity and access to the internet and world wide web.
