FOREWORD

elcome to the twenty-first edition of the Submarine Cable Almanac, one of our most popular reference tools. There have been 26 systems updated, and 3 systems added since the last issue. If you’re interested in finding a specific system, or wish to see all systems in a region, simply type that name or region into the search function. We hope that you, our readers, will participate in this almanac as you’ve done with our previous products. There is always room for additional data, so let us know if there is something else we should include in future editions. Please let us know by completing our Submarine Almanac Update Form, available by clicking here, or by emailing almanac@subtelforum. com. Finally, I want to thank all of the sponsors, staff and dedicated readers that contributed to this Almanac. Your feedback has been invaluable.
