Or, even better, a mesh voip solution. I was working at a festival last year (50k
visitors, 2k staff) and phone service was down (surprise!) for all but one network. With
mesh networking you could make calls within the mesh easily, and with enough endpoints,
outside the mesh as well.
AFAIK you can do mesh-like networks with BT as well (bridget piconets), but I think you'll
get hit with the limited range.
