Infostations provide a new way to look at the problem of providing high-data-rate wireless access. By allowing delayed message delivery, we can lift the constraint on ubiquitous coverage inherited from voice cellular systems. The reduction of coverage results in significant capacity gains, showing the possibility for low-cost broadband wireless data services. We give an overview of ongoing research on the Infostation concept.
