Tropospheric scatter[edit]

I was wondering if anyone could verify if tropospheric scatter was still being used for communications with Barbados, Guyana and Grenada. I believe all of those were replaced with fiber optic or microwave communications.Ryan

You bring up a good point. I too suspect they may have replaced....

From here, Barbados - [Quote] The vast *majority* of international telephone calls and data services are transmitted on undersea fibre optic cable systems that are . . .

. . . Some of the improvements made relate to **extensive use** of fibre optic and underground cables as well as the use of heat shrink and gel technologies to totally seal the aerial cable. . .[ /Quote ] I'm merely speculating based on what's on the website. CaribDigita 02:15, 22 April 2006 (UTC)

This info is from the CIA factbook, and has been here since (at least) May 2001. There's no reason to think it's anywhere near up-to-date. Guettarda 02:21, 22 April 2006 (UTC)
