What's the problem ? I send several time linux distribution to Ivory Coast
they know very well how to use a CD-burner.

Eh gads! 1 GB/month? That is so draconian. I do that easily in a week and
periodically in a single day when I'm updating my system. And that is just
/my/ computer; my partner and our roomate use even more bandwidth with
games and downloading media files (and they are both
Windows users so they
also have to update /way/ more often). We are only limited by speed; at
one moment we are only able to share a single 1.5 MB/s
America is grand!
But the beauty of even having such a restricted pipeline as you do, is
only one person in your community needs to download
the ISO; then many,
copies can be made of that single file. Then the
updates can trickle-in
easily under your 1 GB limit.
