Fiber optic cable networks are an essential infrastructure links in the global telecommunications network.  Fiber optic cable networks provide for efficient, high-bandwidth transmission of voice, data and video over long-distances.  Some countries, such as USA, and parts of Europe were "early movers" in building out their fiber optic broadband networks, which have been continuously upgraded and expanded.  In those countries, the fiber optic network serves as the backbone for their modern telecommunications networks.  Other countries with much less developed fiber optic networks have alternatively relied disproportionately on satellite communications as their "long-haul" backbone of their telecommunications systems. 

Globally, an extensive and dense fiber optic cable network has been laid both overland and undersea.  Overland, fiber optic cables are often laid along roadway, railway, pipelines, and utility transmission rights-of-way.  Planning transportation, transmission and pipeline infrastructure projects and networks in a manner that includes the leasing of fiber optic rights should be part of a wholistic multi-modal planning frame work that includes public and private stakeholders is an increasingly smart strategy.
