Remember being captivated by the colorful countries on the map at school? I used to spin the classroom globe, mapping routes for my imaginary adventures, Indiana Jones-style. If you have similarly nostalgic memories of maps from your youth, you’re going to love TeleGeography’s Submarine Cable Map.

The Submarine Cable Map, which has been updated to reflect the explosion of projected submarine cables expected by 2014, was inspired by antique maps, according to TeleGeography. It features a timeline of important submarine cable events and a smaller map that provides latency data for major hubs. A hard copy of the map will run you $250, but you can put the map on your PC’s wallpaper right now for free.

I do like old Maps. Thanks for the post.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

That's pretty cool, but $250? can't I just print out my own if its free online?

Old maps are definitely the best looking and easiest for most to understand.
