For those in the middle of nowhere: satellite bandwidth

For those in the middle of nowhere: satellite bandwidth: "I was surfing through the Vonage forums and came across a company called dataBahn. They operate a satellite that provides low-latency Internet connectivity for fixed-location clients who don’t have local infrastructure to get them online (such as construction sites and third-world locales). Coincidentally, their 256 kbps service costs $256 per month. Notably, they specifically support VoIP functionality and don’t have a metered charge. This could be highly useful in environments where remote site setup and teardown happens faster than the phone company can provision a DSL line (like construction and demolition sites) or in areas where cell coverage is insufficiant to support VoIP apps (which is almost everywhere still)."
