Australia, Solomon Islands to ink Huawei-free cable contract today


The third funder for the cable.

This is the cable that was first going to be funded by an Asian Development Bank (or similar name) and then was abruptly changed to the Huawei after an election that changed the Govt that obtained the ADB loan. I wonder if the backhanders have to be returned to Huawei or will they just get to swap out the hardware once the cable it up and running?

I have nothing against the Chinese people (or their food) but I sure as shit do not like their form of government.
