Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And once you're running cables anyway, you might as well run more capacity than you expect to need: The marginal cost of doubling capacity if you're running cables anyway is much lower than retrofitting extra capacity on afterwards. So as long as somebody finds it worthwhile to run internet cables across borders or geographic boundaries, there's likely to be connection. And this is likely to be the case, considering that even during the coldest bits of the so-called "Cold War," Western Europe and the Soviet Union were running gas pipelines across what was probably the least permeable border of the time.
