The Internet by Motorcycle

In Cambodia, motorbikes act as routers [BugMeNot] for a store-and-forward email system. They have a system that allow remote villages in Cambodia to send and receive email via Wi-Fi-equipped motorbikes. The Motoman system converges in the provincial capital where a satellite-enabled school uploads and downloads email for the remote recipients.
