It's quiet bad that this low connectivity case, which is not that rare,
is not included. But we can work on it. In the meantime, you mentioned you
have one place with connectivity.
Could you create a mid-, short-, or long-distance mesh network with
it so that you reach it? Similar to what Freifunk with BATMAN does
and other international meshnetwork communities.

I think I know at least one more person (besides myself) who's
interested in solving problems like these.
