Which course would that be?  I'd pay the $200+ to play at the same time...  ;-)

The people that have invested in global fiber operate much like a
cartel -- leaking the capacity into the market to keep prices
artificially high, much like the DeBeers family & diamonds. :-)

Historically, representatives of these organizations meet once a
year on the golf course in Hawaii to determine who to sell to.

It would be nice to see some new faces in that game -- maybe it
would help leverage the market a bit.
