Actually Tom, its better than that - signals via fibre have to go around 
the curvature of the earth following the sea floor, while the neutrinos 
can take the straight-line path directly through the rock and core.
Thats got to be good for several tens of milliseconds.

The problem to solve is how to miniaturise the many tons and cubic 
metres of neutrino detector material into a SFP form-factor, and still 
intercept sufficient neutrinos to obtain acceptable SNR.
