Internet cables, known as submarine cables, are laid across deep oceans by specialized ships. The cables are designed to be durable and are often buried under the ocean floor to protect them from disturbances and marine life. Protective layers and materials, including steel armoring, help safeguard the cables from physical damage and abrasion. While occasional disruptions due to natural events or human activities can occur, the robust design and strategic placement usually minimize the risk of damage to these vital communication links.
