Makes you wonder if a housing co-op for geeks could work. You know the
way houses are expensive these days, and that home bandwidth is too ?
If twenty people said "I'll buy a house", and then they bought the land,
and got a builder to build the houses, you could get a decent house, ex
land, for £70k each. Add a fibre drop to each house, going into one
central house with a fibre switch, and an E1....wouldn't add too much to
the price of the houses. May as well stick two CatV sockets to each room
in the house...hey...could you do voice over IP too, to the ISP ?
The words of the unwary are apt to cause needless pain and bloody violence.
