Dear Electronic Colleagues:

(3) If you have any friends in Bangkok, pls inform Peter at your earliest convenience.

His previous msgs told me that he devised a scheme in such a way that

K-12 schools in St. Thomas Island in the Caribbean can have broadband
Internet with spread spectrum wireless technology free of charge, and
the expensive $45,000/month leased T1 line at 1.5 Mbps to Washington,
D.C. is subsidized by the charge to industrial communities.

We would like to emulate this scheme for the community development in
our regional activities of the GUS in various developing countries.

He also performed many similar set-ups in Africa for U.N. projects.

Dear Peter:

(4) If you have any updated write-up of your activities, pls let me know their URLs.

Thanks in advance, and wish you a very successful trip to Bangkok.

Best, Tak

I am a friend and supporter of the projects of Takeshi Utsumi, a computer
and telecom engineer, a businessman, and an Internet Pioneer.

I'll be in Bangkok, Thailand, 17 October to 26 October, and will be
attending the Asia Pacific Internet Governance retreat 20-23 October.

If there is anyone on this list in Thailand, I would be pleased to have a
face to face visit to discuss matters of mutual interest.

Please e-mail me directly to pdeblanc@usvi.net
