Broadband for hermits

The benevolent government of the Workers' Paradise of Norway has generously given millions of someone's money for the purpose of offering broadband to everyone in Norway, no matter where. (You still have to pay for the broadband, but not for stretching cables all the way to your remote valley.) The initiative is partly to encourage people to live outside the cities, thus ensuring a higher quality of life both for them and for those who remain in the cities. In parti it is to ensure jobs for workers in the IT infrastructure, which are hit hard by the financial crisis. (IT is one of our most open sectors toward the parts of the world that are unfortunate enough to not be Workers' Paradises.)
