Landing stations can be 10 to 30 kilometers from the beach manhole. I don't think it is big concern. Hibernia Atlantic dublin landing station is a good example.

Raising the question - how well protected against sea level rise *is* the average cable landing/termination station, given that most landing stations in particular are probably fairly near the beach and not very high above sea level? Are there any in particular that we need to worry if another Hurricane Sandy or local equivalent wanders by?
