Hello Monty,

I'm not big into networking but would this work for you?

Option 1

Some ISP's will let you have multiple IP address into your home. Once
the public IP's are in your home you should be able to assign them to
each of your Asterisk servers. If the servers are remote then use your
(ham wifi links etc.) 

Yes it would be more expensive to get more public IP's, but it would be
cheaper then having an ISP drop at the hill top :-)

Option 2

This is more of a question or a possible option. I see folks using cell
phones (Storm Chasers on discovery channel) to push live video via
mobile cell phone connection. Would it be possible to use a high speed
3g/4g cell connection on the hill top for your Internet feed? If so that
would be much cheaper then (long range ham wifi links etc)... 

But who wants to rely on cell phones !?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!!!!
