Indeed - there's fairly local transit capacity (though it is via a BT
exchange, so good luck actually getting a reasonable price off BTWC
for a temporary line) and doing LOS on some temporary towers should be
within the capabilities of some creative engineers. WISPA might be a
good starting point, INCA can certainly put you in touch with the
local crowd to advise.
Either way it'd certainly work out a heck of a lot cheaper than sat.
You can do 3G (DC-HSDPA) in that area on at least one MNO but probably
want a decent directional antenna with some gain on it. That'd
probably work out cheapest, but will be bandwidth limited and you'd be
looking at a fair few devices bonded to get that much bandwidth.
