Ahhh, NBN employees shouldn't panic, I just calculated the savings on
the Endeavour cable (Terminating via Endeavour and TPC-5) and it shaves
a whopping 1088.219178 NANOseconds off the latency. 
Although for science, the five universal physical constants may have to
be added too. Then again a Cern powered neutrino is artificially
boosted...(ok accelerated). Can assisted neutrons be counted as a
constant ?

Then again, for a 3GHz CPU, that equals almost 3700 cycles. I see
considerable relevance in the ARM communications future.
