Contrabandwidth

I read a short article by Kate Palmer in Foreign Policy magazine about evading country-imposed Internet filters. Ms. Palmer writes:

"According to the OpenNet Initiative (ONI), a research organization devoted to tracking blocked Web sites, black market access to filtered pages in Saudi Arabia runs anywhere from $26 to $67 per Web site."

Good grief! Can't these people get a shell account with OpenSSH and proxy their Web requests? I see a market opportunity here.
