Look at how quick it has expanded in the last 10 years.  Given more time 
these vast area of wilderness will have coverage too.  If its not cell 
coverage, it will be wireless Internet, or some other technology.  Even 
if it doesn't work everywhere, that's good too.

We depend too much on always being connected.  We need to take more time 
to enjoy mother nature and to develop personal relationships instead of 
the faceless and impersonal service the Internet provides.
