Interesting - it's amazing the amount of investment that's been made on that infrastructure.

Also, I wonder why Madagascar gets a close-up map shot?

Interesting that some countries were apparently easier to cable around than through. Is the terrain really that bad, or was it just land use/access issues?

^More likely easement issues and physical security I'm guessing.

That's what I meant by land use/access issues. How do we get to the land we're allowed to use, who else is going to be there, and who all is going to be shooting at us when we get there? :D

^I think we already know the answer to that question: EVERYBODY! Considering how our intel community has co-opted the entire infrastructure.. (Kidding, just kidding. Mostly. ) ;) ;D
