Time heals all wounds?

Maybe October is just too recent to erase years of abuse at the hands of satellite caps, but the minute I saw the headline I thought the meters were getting hacked for FREE BROADBAND use. Is that nuts or what...is it even possible??

Nuts In the nicest way, it's just not possible. The mesh is to communicate with each other, not a connection to the public Internet. One hopes. Even if they do, for some absurd reason, use the public Internet (which they darn well shouldn't unless they're IPv6, given the IPv4 address space crunch), it sure wouldn't be "broadband" speed.
