Undersea Cables

An interesting interactive map of undersea cables. Looks like several come into Singapore but into only two termination points.

And another interesting cable map.

And an internet exchange map... looks like Singapore has six.

Fascinating real time traffic and attack maps.

This is interesting how much it varies with no apparent link to the countries level of development. I guess it is also about the "quality" of the exchange point but still it is curious to see some developed countries having single points for large cities.

Here I miss whether these are the sites under attack or attacking sites? "Traffic" should mean "both".
Also what I don't get, how did they get such precise data and why the areas of the high attack traffic have fuzzy borders. The later just makes no sense or is it graphical dramatization?
