It depends on where in some cases. Take Greenland for example. Prior to Tele Greenland possibly completing the Greenland Connect cable real soon now (Halifax to Nuuk, Nuuk to Iceland, branched to Qaqortoq, with xcon to UK and Denmark) I seem to recall that a large amount of their capacity was via satellite from Godthab(Nuuk) to Denmark.
In this case, you're likely talking 100%. Almost all of your remote cases are going to be in a similiar situation ie. Svarlsbad, most stuff above t~N60^ parallel (or so) etc.

Subject: Estimate of satellite vs. Land-based traffic
Participting in a severe solar event EXERCISE. Can anyone give me an
educated guesstimate of the percentage of backbone traffic that is
satellite dependent vs. that which is totally land-based?
