Internet Submarine Cables Map for Trinidad and Tobago

Internet Submarine Cables Map for Trinidad and Tobago

Came across this interactive map of submarine cables that connects the countries of the world. I am guessing a huge part of this network of cables connects us to the internet. According to wikipedia

A submarine communications cable is a cable laid on the sea bed between land-based stations to carry telecommunication signals across stretches of ocean.

According to the link, the map is created from research data and updated regularly. Zooming in on Trinidad and Tobago I see 5 cables landing in Trinidad and 1 connecting Trinidad to Tobago. I wonder what satellite links come to our country? Apart from subsea and satellite the only other type of link I can think of is radio links. I have labelled and listed the links below. I don’t know about you but I find this very fascinating. Please share with us your thoughts in the comments below.
