DharmaTel

{{I=3x11sayidcablemap2.jpg=250=right=Enhanced version of the DHARMA cabling map}}
'''DharmaTel''' is a word that was visible on the blast door map inside the Swan.  Its exact meaning is unknown, but it is believed to be an island-wide network connecting the Stations, the "The ? (Pearl exterior)|?" (The Pearl) at the center of map, and the Barracks.

===Clear references on the blast door map===
* "no safe location for DharmaTel servers/hub/cabling or infrastructure" – 700 position
* “stationwide failure of dharmatel intranet   4.08.00    8.15.01   01.06.03” – 600 position
* “sightings coincide with emergency shutdown of INTRANET SERVICES OF HEIGHTENED SECURITY” – 400 position
* “WHY SO MANY DHARMATEL RELAYS TO SUCH AN UNTENABLE LOCATION?”

===Possible references on blast door map===
* There are several distinct straight lines drawn to/from each of the Stations. These lines could be indicating DharmaTel connections between locations.
**If you look closely, you can see that the lines between the stations form an envelope.
* "suspected shut down date 10.28.84" – 200 position
* “complete shutdown in effect” – 600 position

===Likely functions===
* The instant messaging on the Swan computer, when Michael communicated with Walt.
* The video feeds for the monitors in The Pearl.
* Provides an early warning system to Ben's house when the sonar fence is turned off.
** A phone system seen in the Barracks.

===The DHARMA cabling map===
{{Main}}
*The DHARMA cabling map was found by Sayid in a DHARMA Initiative manual set at the Flame. It shows that the DharmaTel infrastructure extends from the Flame station to the Barracks. 
**The Flame station seemed to be the communications hub for the entire island. It connected the Barracks with the other stations on the Island. It also contained a satellite uplink for communications with the outside world, and controlled the sonar beacon.
*This is also what is probably used to connect and communicate between the hatches.
*Characters are seen using telephones even though there are no visible over-head telelphone wires. DharmaTel was the telephone network on the island as well.
