Although they're mostly hidden from us, Subsea Cables connect the world. This is a network of over 500 cables under the ocean, and Equinix is part of the infrastructure that makes this possible. When you deploy your app, service, or product onto Equinix then you're choosing low latency, security, and coverage - and Subsea Cables make that possible.

This episode explains the cable's speed, history, and importance that allow the internet to be what it is today. Come travel at 671 million miles per hour with us and learn at the speed of light!
