Gee, I seem to remember a little company called MCI that installed 
microwave transmission networks between Chicago and St. Louis in the 
1970's.

Local business reporting is always so much fun to read.  Local boys with 
big ideas make us proud.

On the other hand, how many banks really know exactly how their existing
tranmission facilities are routed or re-routed.  If they aren't already 
using encryption and other security methods, outside plant infrastructure
such as NIDs, man-holes, telephone holes, etc aren't well guarded either.
And can you imagine sending financial instruments in paper envelopes only
secured by a bit of glue left in unsecured boxes next to the road.
