that can lay undersea cables yet? A cable from Northern Europe to Japan
and the US North West under the North Pole icecap would be great.
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 ( As might the telcos who own SeaMeWe-3 (

Hm, I'm still waiting to witness a traceroute from Europe to Asia or the
Pacific that doesn't go over the US for the first time.
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.
