There's about 1/2 a dozen or so known private and government research

that continent? This can't be true.


Constantly shifting ice shelves and glaciers make a terrestrial cable
landing very difficult to implement on Antarctica.  Satellite connectivity
is likely the only feasible option.  There are very few places in
Antarctica that are reliably ice-free enough of the time to make a viable
terrestrial landing station.  Getting connectivity from the landing station
to other places on the continent is another matter altogether.

There were INOC-DBA phones at several of the Antarctic stations, for quite a few years.  We could see connectivity 
to them go up and down as the satellites rose above the horizon and set again.
