Make that 350,000, but let's not quibble over a few thousand - though  
the 250,000 figure was quite accurate around 1980.

But it isn't just access, it's bandwidth, too.

How scalable is 3G if 350,000 users all use the same airspace? How  
would this compare with FTTH?

(and will they suffer the same fate as Northern Territorians that lost  
all telecoms today?)
