Why does antipodean data travel pass outside local jurisdictions

"why on Earth are users in Australia and New Zealand dependent on telecoms in the UK, and does antipodean passport and travel data pass outside local jurisdictions, which sounds a bit naughty!"

Five Eyes, the pasports have to be passed back to GCHQ who passes them back to the NSA in real time. Which doesn't seem to have any adverse impact on the illicit drug trade, the arms trade or the money laundering trade.
