Wi-Five - $59.95 - about 10 miles from the tower - uses Canopy equipment. Really excellent service, great installers, friendly office people.

They were a real challenge to find and serve many really small rural towns and remote areas so I hope no one minds if I include where their service is available. I would hate others to be stuck with HughesNet like I am when they could have vastly superior service from Wi-five.

Service plans and coverage areas are at »www.wi-five.com/plans.html - Wi-Five provides service throughout East Texas. Coverage area includes:
* Rockwall
* Royse City
* Mobile City
* Fate
* Seagoville
* Gun Barrel City
* Seven Points
* Blackland
* Crandall
* Combine
* Warsaw
* Scurry
* Kaufman County
* Prairieville
* Mabank
* Munson
* Forney
* Mclendon-Chisholm
* Colquitt

Re: What is your speed, service price, and location and ISP?

Well, my speeds have degraded lately. Last August I reported in this thread that I was getting 8400/1400. But I now realize that Wireless Beehive was just starting out and they didn't have many customers then to use up their available bandwidth..

Now, I just got 4118/643 which is about half what I used to get. I realize however that compared to what a lot of others have reported in this thread, it still isn't bad for fixed wireless, especially for $39.95 per month with no bandwidth cap.
And it's still the fastest we have around here as far as I know. The only other thing we have is 1500/256 DSL for $49.95 per month with a one year contract from Frontiernet. And they are talking about imposing a 5 GB cap. Yikes!

I hope that Wirelessbeehive doesn't continue to oversell their available bandwidth. I called them and they said that they have ordered more equipment and it should speed up again. They said that during peak hours there is a bottleneck sometimes, but they are working on it.

Eagle Communications, Eagle Rural Internet; $54.95 / month. (The identification by the speed test of the ISP as swbell.net is mistaken. I contract with and cut checks to Eagle, not AT&T.)

I do not know what technology is being used to support my service except that it uses an antenna that is about an inch thick and 12" square and is way up on a line of sight pole. The broadcast point is about 4 miles away.

The ethernet like cable from the "antenna" connects to a 1" cube powered by a Motorola labled transformer block. There is a flat ethernet like cable from this cube that connects to the computer. I would appreciate any information you can give me about that.

Request information in another thread in the forum. This thread is just for WISP users to report speed, price, location and ISP.

2year update :P

Same ISP, same package, same details.

Page 10:
WISP: ECS IS(Local Only)
Location: Northwest TN
Advertised Speed(my plan): 2MB down / 512KB up.
Price: 59.95/month can go to 3MB down / 512KB up for 10 dollars more a month, but don't see a need to.
Includes: 3 email accounts, home page hosting(not that good), static IP.
Distance from tower: 1/4 mile, line of site, signal was 100/100 on 2.4 GHZ(Canopy), so yeah im close..

Pings are pretty good, not as good as some, they range around 30-100ms for games. Its a reliable connection, during peak times I usally don't get under 1.4MB down, which is very nice coming from HughesNet.

Overall: Fast Enough Speeds(for me), No FAP(dl limit), pings are good, great support.

EDIT: I noticed alot of people where using SpeedTest.Net, and here my result:

Good Enough for me 3.

Typical "last mile" latency: 15-20ms (Note that their peering agreements also suck - bad peering locations)

Speed: 50k-2M/50k-2M
Latency: 25ms-3000ms
Packet loss: 5-40%
Price: $45/mo

Service was actually pretty solid for about 2 years. Intermittent connection and latency has showed up in the last 4 months. 3G may be my only other option.

Cricket Wireless "Unlimited Broadband" - 5gb the first month at about 90Kb/s.
Then it drops to 10-20Kb/s if you are still using it. If you stop using for a month. It will re-release the Gbs you used the last month as Crickets computer counts you back under your original 5Gb allotment. But you won't be charged any more than the $40/month. eg no $600 surprise bills.

Speed 20Kb/s
Price: $40/month plus about $10 more in taxes etc

Speed: 768/256
Price: $44.99 (6/GB month data cap, $3/GB for overages)
Eastern Oregon Net, Inc. in Lostine, OR

Not sure what's with the crap ping, that doesn't seem usual.

Notes: decent, respectful customer service. Speeds are okay most of the time, sometimes have a day or two where it's raaaather slow. Data cap and overage charges are ridiculous.

Re: What is your speed, service price, and location and ISP?

Clear Wireless

Seattle, WA (98126) - Admiral District

Download 2 Mbps

Upload 0.5 Mbps

Latency 250 ms constant with extended spikes up of 1500 to 2500 ms (1 + hours long)

$55/mo home + mobile combo package for 6Mbps D/1 Mbps U

Performance is equal to 56k dial up or ISDN/iDSL but far more unreliable and oversubscribed network due to the latency and RF issues. Tests show good bandwidth but performance does not match test results.

Basically many services such as VoIP, IM's and streaming video services are unusable.
