Global Crossing connects Antarctica?

June 5th, 2008 by · 1 Comment

Now that’s a POP…  Jubany Antarctic Base Communicates Via Global Crossing! I wish I could get the story from the guy from that truck-roll for Tales from the Field

You can just hear the other carriers yelling from their nice warm offices in the USA and Europe: “Way to go!  Yes of COURSE we’re right *cough* behind you!”  Yes, I know it’s a satellite hookup, but if they laid fiber that would really be something though eh?  It’s only another 500 miles off of Cape Horn to reach land down there…  🙂  After all, once we melt all the ice that’s prime ocean front property down there.

Next maybe they’ll hook up a continent with actual population that they don’t yet reach?  I mean, I can think of a couple… LOL  Ok, I’ll stop now.
