Balloons for broadband: "The system works by floating a helium-filled envelope in the air, which is held stationary and fed signals via a fibre optic [tether cable]. Such a system would offer net access at more than double the speed of most broadband services currently available. "  18 balloons would cover all of Britain.  Each balloon hovers 1.5 km up, covering 2000 sq miles (40 km radius), 1-10 mbps subscriber rate, 30,000 subscribers.
