Long distance corporation killer!!!!!!!!!!
With families like yours and mine ,long distance companies are going to have a hard time.
Being from the old days of analog satelite, with 100 feet dishes pointing 5 kw of radio power to a noisy bird on the heavens , it is hard to believe that we have “family networks” with multiple gateways across the globe and gatekeepers.
One little price quote from the past:
Price of a analog link from the U.S. to South America on the early ’80?????
Just one channel of audio equivalent to a 64 KB link of today????
A nice $8.000 US dollars a month!!!!
Anyone that think that the “old days” are better?????????????
