In North Dakota, former Governor Ed Schafer is backing a plan to loft wireless network repeaters on balloons high above the state to fill gaps in cellular coverage. "To cover every square mile of North Dakota, it would take 1,100 cell towers," Schafer says. "We can do the whole state with three balloons." He says the balloons cost $55, compared to $250,000 for a new cell tower - and would provide voice & data from 20 miles up - well above commercial air traffic.
