      Trans-oceanic capabilities will remain a bottleneck, but they
      are not as problematic as in the previous decade. Witness Tyco
      or any of the other folk that have cable-laying capability. Last
      year they had waiting lines for boats.  Now the boats are idle.
      Too much capacity in water and no-one taking it up. (see first
      point above) 

Transatlantic bandwidth is becoming surprisingly cheap. It's now 50% 
cheaper to get from New York to London than it is to get from New York to 
San Jose.
