Five fun facts from Broadband Wiki

broadbandwikiWe have had overwhelming support for the broadband around the planet wiki, and we now have more than two dozen countries already in the wiki. We still need more help, and are counting on your support. Please help us spread the word. I registered and it directs to our wiki. Also, we have a Broadband+Google Maps mash-up in the works, and have a brand new logo. If you can, please put the logo on your websites, and link back to the wiki. Thanks for your generous support.
