The Midway is a shopping, business, entertainment and residential district located at the approximate mid-point of the Beanstalk (about 36,000km above the surface), and thus is in a geostationary orbit with the earth below, which is why it was such a popular business locale. NBN, which uses much of the Space Elevator for its broadcast network transmissions, has a strong presence amongst Midway business. The Midway Station Grid, operated by NBN, is notoriously taxing to its users.
The Midway is primarily a middle-class area, and is thus avoided by 'risties and the wealthy, who prefer The Castle Club.
