Abstract

When is it faster to hop on a satellite link than it is to take a subsea fibre route? When is sneaker-net faster faster than ftp between two networks in the same city? Answer to both: when you're a small island in the Pacific.

This ISIF.asia funded project explores the internet uptake, connectivity, and interconnectivity of a number of island nations in the Pacific. Physical links including submarine fibre cables and satellite networks are discussed, a physical distance to latency indicator is introduced, and provider networks are evaluated for latency.
