Communication cable in the world

A few days ago I’ve discovered a website that provides a full map of the submarine cable that connects different countries. It has very good information: you can find the cable’s name, when it was fully operational, owner, landing points and sometimes a link. I was courious to see if there is some sea cable that connects Romania and it is:
