From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

TAT-7 was the seventh transatlantic telephone cable, in operation from 1983 to 1994, initially carrying 4,000 3 kHz telephone circuits between New Jersey, United States and Porthcurno in southwest England. It was owned by AT&T, British Telecom and France Telecom.[1]

Although optical fiber had been invented in 1970, this cable was still using coaxial cable technology.
