Submarine Undersea Cables Landing in Oregon

Until recently I never really realized how significant a role Oregon plays in the Pacific undersea cable business.  Apparently it is easier to get permits to land cables in Oregon than it is in California or Washington and our undersea geography is conducive to such projects.

As I have dug deeper into this topic, I put together a spreadsheet of all the different cables that land in Oregon (that I am aware of).  As usual, if I am missing anything, please send me an email.

I am working to add the cable landing stations and cable termination stations to my Portland/Oregon telecom map.

I find it disappointing how little “peering” we have going on in Oregon considering the amount of bandwidth flowing through the state up to Washington, down to California, East to Boise, off the coast to Alaska, and further West to Asia.  With the addition of the new immense capacity of the TPE cable Oregon has even more data flowing through it than ever before.

And just in case you want to know more about these cables, here is a list of all the references I have come across:
