It is about espionage – US against China: new cold war at the bottom of the sea

Technology sanctions, blacklists, bans: the relationship between the US and China is more tense than it has been for decades and an open trade and technology war is now raging at the political level. But the battle for dominance is being fought in a different, hidden place: in the depths of the oceans.

This is where the global internet lifelines run: thousands of miles of undersea fiber optic cables connecting continents and making the world wide web available worldwide for the first time. 95 percent of all data sent over the internet goes through this high-tech infrastructure – and the trend is continuing thanks to the cloud and artificial intelligence. However, the currently approximately 400 cables are not only of economic and social importance. They are also irresistible to intelligence agencies.
