Building high-speed wireless in Afghanistan out of garbage

excerpt:

“Volunteers in Afghanistan — both locals and foreigners from the MIT Bits and Atoms lab — have been building out a wireless network made largely from locally scrounged junk. They call it “FabFi” and it’s kicking ass, especially when compared with the World Bank-funded alternative, which has spent seven years and hundreds of millions of dollars and only managed its first international link last summer.
