I certainly wholeheartedly support your common sense suggestions for an unlimited, unrestricted local (fiber) network without quotas.
While the Falkland Islands may be dependent on satellite capacity for international connectivity, there the islands should be self sufficient in their national networking.
The national network should be available to all at a low cost fixed flat rate fee and provide basic services locally, such as email, a forum, messaging and news aggregation. This is all very easy and simple to provide with a local server. Content can be refreshed using a dedicated low bandwidth satellite link or using existing excess capacity at night.
