Out of curiosity, why weren't there any existing emergency/last-resort
microwave links already in place? It seems to be known that this cable
is a single point of failure ahead of time. Were there previous plans to
set up any microwave links that got put on the back burner or canceled?
Is there too much focus on fiber being the only option? IMO it's harder
for a fire to destroy a microwave path vs. a fiber path, and some
capacity is better than no capacity.
