TeleGeography at SubOptic 2019
They came, they saw, they busted some myths.
Tim Stronge and Alan Mauldin—better known as the TeleGeography Mythbusters—returned to SubOptic to detonate another set of subsea cable falsehoods.
Armed with a PowerPoint, statistics, and a dream, the duo exploded such telecom myths as:
- The U.S. remains at the center of the global internet
- Bandwidth prices will be the same everywhere
- Elon Musk’s satellites will put undersea cables out of business
- And that old chestnut: a majority of internet traffic is “adult content”
