I believe that HP signs contacts with other companies that supply
the cable. I have seen maps similar to what your link shows.
These are very well known in the industry. I know a guy who
worked in that industry for some time and he had lots of cable
Email Bill Wickes and let me know.

Subject: fiber cable cut ... again
During our visit to the HALO demo in Corvallis we were told
that HP has their own dedicated fiber optic network. They
said in case of a break in a cable it was possible to
reconfigure to go around the the world in the other
direction for a quick fix.
Did anyone get information on the route of HP's HALO network?
Note the fat bundle going from Miami to Puerto Rico.

Beta News reports that 3 undersea cables carrying a huge
amount of Internet traffic for the Middle East and South
Asia were cut within 40 minutes of each other, resulting
in large outages in several countries.
