If you're across an ocean from the US, you have to factor in the cost of
running underwater cable.

If that is the case, why is it almost the same cost, if not more
expensive, to get a LA<>NY OC3 then a NY<>LND STM1?

i would imagine that the cost of trenching across a continent is somewhat
more labour intensive than reeling cable out of the back of a boat.

although slicing a cable break in the desert of Nevada is probably less
labour intensive than hauling a cable up in the middle of the atlantic.

but then again, there are probably far fewer errant backhoes in the atlantic.
