Blogger w7062c wrote [1] [RUS] about two unsuccessful attempts to connect Sakhalin island [2] [EN] (island in the Pacific north closer to Japan) to the broadband network of Russia. The third attempt is scheduled for 2011. Until then, 580,000 inhabitants of the island are able to go online via satellite only.
