French Resistance uses satellite broadband for anniversary event

Sourced through Scoop.it from: www.computerweekly.com

Although Whaddon is connected to wired networks, the community hall had no internet at all, so the ISP Europasat installed the tooway antenna that made the joint celebration possible.
