Wonder what bandwidth you have between north of Cape Town

Hi,no i'm right by the beach in Durban....I was just pointing out that 3G isn't a slug like you were suggesting @ 9kbps.....It would be a fine option to use around main centres/ ports
etc but its the same with cell ph coverage, its dead once you move away offshore.
Usable & cheaper instead of a sat ph when in such areas if you haven't got free WiFi access.
I reckon you need to evaluate if your trading is profitable @ +$10 per MB for data that your going to be paying trading via sat ph - the Iridium
Openport/Pilot - Sailor 150/Fleetbroadband system will do it with a $5-6000 outlay but is the end result going to warrant it once you take out the data cost?
Swing trading maybe with EOD data but 30sec data i dunno about that one.
