||Can DES be broken?
||Yes, In 1998 the Electronic Frontier Foundation won the RSA DES Challenge II-2 contest by breaking DES in less than 3 days. EFF used a specially developed computer called the DES Cracker, which was developed for under $250,000. The encryption chip that powered the DES Cracker was capable of processing 88 billion keys per second. More recently, in early 1999, Distributed. Net used the DES Cracker and a worldwide network of nearly 100,000 PCs to win the RSA DES Challenge III in a record breaking 22 hours and 15 minutes. The DES Cracker and PCs combined were testing 245 billion keys per second when the correct key was found. In addition, it has been shown that for a cost of one million dollars a dedicated hardware device can be built that can search all possible DES keys in about 3.5 hours. This just serves to illustrate that any organization with moderate resources can break through DES with very little effort these days.
Currently we supply service in 6 counties - Franklin, Bedford, Roanoke, Campbell, Henry and Pittsylvania County. We are always expanding and stretching out to provide more areas with service.
Our product line is based on Line-of-Site and Non-Line-of-Site technology. The Line-of-Site product requires a visual line of site to one of our towers. If you can see the tower then service should be good at your location. Our Non-Line-of-Site product has a limited range and is only located from certain towers but can provide service through trees and some obsticals. In either case before agreement signing, we will preform an on-site survey to verify the quality of service. The survey will consist of us bringing a mobile unit to your location and testing it thoroughly.
We have many tower locations now in the surrounding area, and are currently installing new ones monthly. Currently we have well over 30 access points providing service. (For more information please review the coverage map for a tower near you.)
