Just curious, what could one do with a DirectWay or similar satellite internet connection and an Asterisk setup for VOIP?
What could one do for the user-end phone system? Have a bank of phones that you set outside the truck (for the Asterisk + satellite setup, not the AT&T cellphone-in-a-trunk setup)?
I suppose the delays over satellite are going to be quite annoying to voice calls (but they would in any satellite-based voice system).
