There was also "Planet Connect" years ago that delivered full Usenet (128K
worth) along with all my Fidonet BBS updates too .. I think I just dated
myself ;)

We still have an old Cidera system on a rooftop that nobody has taken down
yet ...

Skycache/Cidera...until it didn't fit anymore in the bandwidth they had. 
IIRC, it was only around 28mbps.

Also, IIRC, that "business" was a sort of after thought after their 
original plan (squid cache pre-population) didn't pan out.

Anyone want to buy some Skycache chopsticks?  I think I still have a few 
unopened sets from whichever late 90s ISPCon I went to in San Jose, 
CA...Skycache rented out some museum for a sushi party.
