Here's a feasible approach:
The technologies I mention are in use already in Cuba, although outside the
legal system and thus subject to confiscation - case in point the newsclip
about dusmantlement of an underground wifi network leveraging Ubiquiti
Networks technology. Now they have a chance to set up coops to provide the
same service within the boundaries of the legal system. It is very
important for the progressive technology sector (people like the
subscribers to this list) to exert pressure to open up the state telecom
monopoly to new players, especially those based on democratic control of
the means of production, like Coops.
