Global Connections

So this is probably a dumb question but I couldn't find any answers on Google. Perhaps I'm phrasing it incorrectly. As I was going through my study material for the ICND1, I couldn't help but wonder how networks are interconnected globally. I mean, I understand the concept of the ISP's having all their Fiber Optic lines underground, but once the signal runs out of land, then what? How is Kabel Deutschland and O2 connected to Comcast and Verizon and so forth? I mean you can't run Fiber Optic lines across the ocean right? Satellite would have too much latency wouldn't it? I'd love to have some light shed on my confusion.
