Interesting article via Slashdot. Providing 128-256kb/s "always on"
access in rural Iowa using grain elevators. Not much technical detail
For $40 a month the residential service provides
an "always-on" connection at a speed of 128
kilobytes per second, which is comparable to
cable and digital subscriber line access available
in larger cities. An even faster speed of 256 kbps
is offered for $65 a month.
Perhaps this can be done here. Anyone aware of the radio regulations?
