Part of the problem is that we only have a few ISPs to cover an area as large as all of Europe. Many places are remote enough that one ISP can claim it, and others don't see the expense of setting up infrastructure in the area as profitable enough when they would be competing with another ISP.

I'd like to see the correlation with moving targets and whether the project originated from the military itself (discretionary spending) or originated from congressional mandate. A few other variables to measure congressional micromanagement would probably make for a very interesting regression line.

The Problem is that makes this a SLAPP suit, and those are flagrant misused of the legal system that should carry mandatory disbarment and criminal penalties to the plaintiff. If they wanted to do this right, they could have invited him to an office and continued to haggle (ludicrous claims are how you start that, on both sides), or let him sue them and then defend themselves in court. They are clearly in the wrong.
