Covering the distance

Haast and back again. Absolutely beautful weather.
Satelitte connections work one way really well, the download speed exceeds all exectations, but upload is slwerthan the normal dal-up so the school cannot take part in video-conferencng.
The cell phone coverage for the area the school is in was supposed to come through June-July this year but nothing as yet.
This is not about technology fashions and playing with it, it is about sending and recieving information for education and communication.
The gap here is some of the in between technology, better send and recieve equipment, better linkages between the provider and the customer, better routers and modems.  The children are waiting, the adults are waiting and want this ability as well. It would make my job so much easier.
