Currently using satellite, with long latencies that make it impossible to do VoIP or interactive gaming? One of America's best kept secrets, so it seems, is the [1]wide coverage of WISPs b terrestrial (not satellite or
cellular) wireless broadband Internet providers. The linked article gives an overview of WISPs and provides a handy map showing their nationwide coverage (more than 750,000 square miles of the continental US b and only about one third of the WISPs in the US are on the map so far). Most WISPs are small, independent, consumer-friendly, and tech savvy, making them a better choice than big, corporate ISPs who [2]can't even tell a penny from a dollar."

Great article... I'm really interested in global broadband more than I am US. Telecommunications needs to span the world...
