Twinax is 5,250'(one mile) while most twisted pair I have seen is
usually under 500'.... I suspect you are looking at a remote
controller and a telephone line for those folks....(5394-5494)

Since you work for the telephone company, a dedicated line would be
the way to go.....(4 wire) but lower volume users could be put on
a cheap dial line and run just fine at 33.6 kbps...
