Could you get a E1 to the phone company network on Iraq at this moment???
I heard that was next to imposible to get that done in Iraq, most operators that I know only have a sattellite link to the internet and a place where outgoing calls could be made.
No conection wahtsoever to the normal PSTN ntwork on the country.
You are absolutelly right about the bandwith issue.
Also, unfortunatelly, the cheap options on sattelite bandwith, almost guarantied not to work with VOIP.
Try them out with VOIP before you buy a expensive tranceiver.
