  • PersonalTelcoProject teamed up with WinfieldWireless to provide OryCon24 with Internet access. Paul Allais worked with the PTP Special Ops Team to make a connection from the KGON tower on the West Hills of Portland to the PTP Van at the Columbia River Double Tree on the Columbia River. Here is what the the Internet Cafe manager had to say:

    "Everything went swimmingly well. The cooperative interaction and performance of PTP and Winfield was fabulous. Over the weekend, I believe Paul from Winfield Wireless said we moved about 1.5 million 64 bit packets through their link. Apparently, we had some appreciative members of the convention. Thanks again. I spread the PTP name far and wide. You should be getting a few inquiries."
