In 1869 the Transcontinental Railroad was built that revolutionised the population and economy of the American West. As a vital link for trade, commerce and travel it joined the eastern and western halves of the late 19th-century United States.
The Transcontinental Telegraph was constructed alongside the route of the Transcontinental Railroad. This was a milestone in electrical engineering and in the formation of the United States of America. It was the only method of near-instantaneous communication between the east and west coasts during the 1860s.

There is no denying just how important our networks are today. Road, rail, sea, and air. Sea Fibre Networks have built a vital “bridge” under the Irish Sea that connects Ireland to the UK. It transports huge amounts of data and it’s called CeltixConnect!
