        The trans-Pacific problem is being solved.  Give it another
6-18 months and fibre between US/CA and ANZ or JP or SG should drop
significantly in price.  Now the problem of adding fibre in/out of 
China, that could still use some attention, IMHO.  FWIW, Tyco (and
presumably their competitors) still has/have ships busy in the 
Pacific Ocean.
