Population density issues (you can only have so many people with long driveways
and neighbors far away per square mile) mean that these people are *way* down
the long tail. Right up there with people who live on tiny almost uninhabited
islands out in the middle of the ocean. :)

Since there isn't infinite money to build a system that will reach *everybody*,
the only reasonable approach is to cobble together a set of overlapping systems
on existing technology that covers the most people while staying inside the
funding restrictions.
