I spend part of the time in rural east Poland. Internet access is problematic.

  • Originally, we had some terrestial LTE solution. It worked really bad, especially when more folks in this area went online
  • Currently, we have internet with BigBlu through a geostationary satellite. Bandwidth is better (still quite bad), but latency is terrible - It's not workable.

What alternatives?

  • Relatively slow
  • High latency makes it difficult to work. E.g., SSH is frustrating to use
