Oceans Keeping the Internet Online

You would find it amazing if you could look under the ocean. What you would find there would be many miles of cables that criss-cross all the oceans in the world. It is like a huge, underwater web.

Communication companies are able to keep up with international connections by constantly submerging cables down into oceans which wind up on flat surfaces on the ocean floor. If you are wondering if any creatures of the deep might disturb these cables then some of them need to have shark-proof layers to keep the shark’s teeth from biting into the cables.
