Nothing if the reason isn't to avoid the US to prevent interception.
ie. my point was the people are doing this for engineering reasons not
political ones as was implied by that article.
We have connectivity to Japan to reduce latency to Asia from Australia
(ie. remove the trombone via the US) - this is purely an
engineering/commercial decision to improve latency.
