Since I started all this Iceland nonsense, I should add that there are 
plans to build some massive new network between Iceland and North 
America and Europe, which is supposed to have good enough 
bandwidth/latency to make it practical to locate datacenters in Iceland. 
I would provide I a link, but I forget where I read it. High Frequency 
Trading is a special, extreme case, so can it can definitely be argued 
that this new link may still not be good enough for HFT.
