Don't know about the icecaps -- the Middle East will probably have
more demand than the North Pole for a long long time -- but I think
FLAG has some bandwidth they'd like to sell you
(http://www.flagtelecom.com/cable_route.htm). As might the telcos
who own SeaMeWe-3 (http://smw3.fcr.fr/SMW/SMWB2.htm)...

Yes, but at least you can see traces from S Korea to Japan, say,
which don't route through Palo Alto. Region-to-region is harder.
