Given that large areas of the planet don't have a nearby node where you 
can plug in a mesh connector to more than dialup, it'd seem that 
satellite is a nice option.
What is the total satellite bandwidth over Africa?
At a few thousand kids per connector, that could be quite a large total 
number of connections.
Can the existing infrastructure cope with a few thousand megabit 
connections from?
