OPLIN 4cast Podcast #21: Buying Broadband

Posted in 4cast, 4pod, Boxee, Google Shared Storage, Internet, iPhones, and KVM

The OPLIN connection provided to each Ohio public library is intended to give Ohioans Internet access to their library systems and is therefore limited to one connection per library system, usually to the main library or the location where a library’s servers are housed. A library system with branch libraries is left with the decisions of “if” and “how” it will put broadband Internet in the branches, sometimes with a bewildering array of options. This podcast gives libraries some background on what’s happening with Internet connections and passes along a few tips on buying broadband.
