I think IWIN will work wherever there is mobile phone service. That is
the wireless connectivity they are talking about.

You can buy mobile Internet service with similar performance as
IWIN. There are two standards. I think that CDPD is one, GPRS is the
other. "Some day" there will be 1Mbit cellular Internet through one of
these technologies.

I don't like this idea of "silent dispatch."
