Forget the EMCOMM support, that does not make sense anymore. Read on...

WIMAX will be available from sprint soon. THAT will be a reliable  
technology for ecom. With one access point, they will cover a wide  
area for both data and voice. NOW, imagine multiple access point  
( and I mean 2 or 3 max) and regardless of what the ecom situation  
is, help will get through.

We have to understand here that P4 satcom for ecom is not a selling  
point anymore.
