These are the kinds of things that WISPA should be working on, IMO.
Creating an alternate network to the ILECs is something WISPs and CLECs should have been working on the last couple of years. Imagine if every chance possible all traffic - data, internet, voice, VoIP - went on a private network instead of the BOC network??? (For one, I would be out of business, but the BOCs would be reeling from the economic effect).
