Oh YES! I agree. And PLEASE do not make it a pay per use service, I hate those. (You could put a "minimum charge" sign in the window, so that people weren't just buying a cup of coffee and sitting there for 10 hours, sort of thing -- Set it up so that it kicks the connection off after a certain amount of time.)
