  • View a list of all cables that came online in a specific year—enter “Ready for service in” and the year in the search box (for example, “Ready for service in 1999”), or navigate to a cable’s profile and select its hyperlinked RFS date.
  • Share data from the map. To share the URL of a cable’s profile, navigate to it and copy the URL from your browser. The URLs of country, landing point, and RFS searches are also shareable.
