Updated with Telegeography link.
I was just curious about how Magerata was connected to the outside world. I started investigating the big boy SLTnet, Sri Lanka Telecom.
First thing jumped out of the picture was that SLTnet, has single handedly laid a submarine cable (or extended SMW4 to London and New York.) or they do not know what they are talking about. But if you think I am wrong, please enlighten me. The following map is from SLTnet;
From the sketch you will notice that SMW4 (South East Asia–Middle East–Western Europe 4 (SEA-ME-WE 4)) runs all the way to London and New York. But below is the actual network route of SMW4;
But SMW3 runs all the way to London(Goonhilly actually), (SMW4 was built to complement SMW3);
So I wonder
If they made a mistake in the sketch? or
if they have an extension of SMW4 (HIC)? or
If they are hoodwinking Sri Lankan populace saying that they have a 6.8Gbps inbound and outbound pipes?
I stand to be corrected?

One of the readers, Herman provided the following Telegeography link, where all the under sea cables are listed. Thanks Herman
