      "...They’re sending a seven person team to Iqaluit, Cape Dorset, Hall
      Beach, Igloolik, Taloyoak, Gjoa Haven, and Cambridge Bay to talk to the
      local leaders. They’ll be looking to build some bridges, and figure out
      just where to put the fiber without disrupting life in the region. After
      all there’s never been a cable quite like this one could be, with problems
      that haven’t really come up before. And pretty much all the people that
      know the geography up there real well know it because they live there.

      Arctic Fibre’s in-service date for the full system connecting London and
      Tokyo is December of 2015. But the bulk of the work would be taking place
      next year, and the price tag will end up at $620M. They’ve also proposed a
      secondary expansion which would use nine microwave links to extend big
      bandwidth to 23 more communities for another $237M. ..."
