I am trying to determine which undersea cables used for London/Amsterdam traffic are the most reliable - fewest outages due to shunt faults and other problems.

Looks like most of the traffic traverses the following systems:

Farland North



Circe North


My recollection, which is foggy, is that Circe North was rebuilt due to repeated shunt faults.

Feel free to contact me offlist so you can share the good, the bad, and the ugly. [😊]
