Interesting though but there's a small problem or two:
I'd be astonished is there's anyone exchange in the country to which 24 ILUG
members are connected.
If I were astonished, I'd be flabbergasted if those 24 all wanted to pay 50+
EUR / month for ADSL.
AFAIK you'd have to a registered/certified/whatever OLO to do this. I'm sure
this would require a level of capitalisation above and beyond ILUG's 2K EUR
and besides, the treasurer wants to spend that on beer :-)
