Last month CUP conducted a study of all planned, conceived or under-construction cable systems in South America.
Our findings shocked even us: Almost 5 dozen systems are in the works on that continent and that number doesn’t even include Brazil (because of the Portuguese language issues – as in, we don’t speak Portuguese), the largest country and economy in South America.
The idea has spread at a remarkable rate, starting with one very humble system in Medellin, Colombia, which opened only half a decade ago.
Once this crosses the divide into the English-speaking world, all bets are off.
