The first permanent transatlantic cable landed at Newfoundland on July 27, 1866, and was confirmed operational with the message: "All right". The cable opened to the public the next day. This built upon the first successful undersea telegraph cable, between Dover and Calais, which went into public service on 13 November 1851.
