TIL: this is what an undersea internet cable looks like. What an absolute unit.

What do these multiple contained cables do? And why it's mostly copper? I thought I would see much more fiber cables in there or am I not seeing them?

Still curious. Has a outerworld aesthetics to it.
Fiber is really, really tiny: There are hundreds of them at least in this cable. Some of the smaller cables. I'm pretty sure the copper ist to provide power for the Repeaters.
