There are two old cable systems heading out from Western Australia (MMC forgot JASURAUS). Darwin is a monopoly zone, only Telstra have capacity into it although others have thought about it (assuming the government stumps up some cash). The technical issue with submarine cables out of Darwin is avoiding the Timor Trench. It makes more sense for a lot of reasons to head out of Perth if you want to go west. Mark.
