At TeleGeography, we’ve been tracking the expansion of the global Internet for two decades.  We’ve seen international Internet capacity increase nearly 9000-fold between 1999-2019. While the U.S. still plays a major role, the development of more independent regional networks, coupled with a need for inter-regional diversification, has reduced the share of international capacity connected to the U.S. This has lead to a more resilient and reliable global network.
