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.
