Terrestrial Segment Repeater Stations


From the TyCom cable landing stations at Pottington and Highbridge, the land segment of the cable travels through Wiltshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire to Stratford in London.

From here it travels through Herefordshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire, and then through Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and then in to Yorkshire, terminating at Hunnamby.

Along the way, the signal requires regeneration every 73km approximately (with a tolerance of approximately +/-3500m) and so building to house the repeater equipment is necessary.
