Fiber Optic Link Around the Globe also known as, FLAG, is about a 28 thousand kilometer long optical fiber. It is mostly of submarine communication cables. It connects through the United Kingdom all the way through Japan and many of the places in between. This cable is operated by something called Global Cloud Xchange. FLAG was considered the fourth longest cable in the world in 2008. FLAG also includes undersea cable segments as well as two terrestrial crossings.
