And if you enlarge the map, you can see little dots on the lines representing the cables that denote repairs.

Lots and lots of repairs. Treacherous waters.

They aren't that diverse in the water either and many cables cross
each other and cluster before they hit landing stations including out
in the middle of the sea. The Teleography maps, for example, are not
route maps, they are showing a cable A and Z end with a relative
route. The International Cable Protection Committee has some literal
maps available that show just how much of a mess it all is.

US East Coast to UK West Coast is a great example.
