There is no one to serve internet to in New Orleans but FEMA and the work crews and I am sure that the Feds have satellite set up. New Orleans has been issued orders for COMPLETE evacuation. They are moving all the folks out of the shelters to higher ground (refugee camps) North of New Orleans City limits. It will be many months before anyone will be allowed back into New Orleans. Water is still pouring into town as we speak due to levee breaches and is expected to have 9' of water downtown before it quits coming across the levee. A soup bowl cant hold but so much soup.

I'm wondering if there's some way we c ould get
     FEMA to fund a group of us going down there and
     basically putting in an infrastructure so that
     communication is possible.   We could have lots
     of data and VOIP capability real fast, compared
to the telcos. North East Oregon Fastnet, LLC 509-593-4061

yeah, right. The telcos will be screaming. And they'll get all the press. "They didn't even use UNION labor! SPank
       them!"
Double edged sword.

       I can see the National headlines.  "Group of
       WISPs from WISPA save the day be restoring
       communications weeks before the telcos"  :)

Is there any way some of us other WISPs can show up with
some
infrastructure and save the day? Could be a good
opportunity to help
some people and do some good marketing WISPs at the same
time.
