HI Chele,many thanks for your help. At this point everything will help me. I understand the question is vague and sorry about the less information.I am a management student and have just started the project and still looking for information on ISP.

Thanks a lot for your suggestion. I am sure you will get success very soon. I really like the people who starts their own business.

Actually I am a management student and this project is part of my study. But I do understand technical things as I have almost 6 years of experience in telecom and networking. But I don't know what type of router, switched and servers will be required and approximately what will be the cost. I need to do a approximate calculation for startup cost. I have calculated the backbone, license cost and CPE cost. I don't have need to calculate Radio access network(RAN) cost, that I can get on lease. As you said you have your own ISP so you probably can help me. Please ask me if you need any detail.thanks

Thanks a lot Jim_p_prince7,

I have already done the market feasibility study and know my probable customer. At this moment I am planning three different speed options for clients, 2mbps down & 512 up, 4 down & 1 up and 8 down & 2 up. I know my competitors and have done SWOT analysis and PEST analysis.By the way I am a management student and this is a part of my study. But I understand technical things as I have worked with ISP and different telecom organisations. Hope I will get some help from professionals.
thanks

thanks once again OHSrob,

I have done market study and calculated the potential customers. I don't have to bother about the wireless network as the investors are planning to lease the Radio Access Network. I just have to calculate the ISP cost minus infrastructure cost. I guess if the investors can lease wireless network then they just have to think about the CPE cost, the ISP cost and bandwidth cost. Please help me if I am wrong.Also I will be thankful if you can help me with cost analysis for ISP.

thanks

Hi totalaccess, thanks for your reply. probably you got what I am looking for.
I am looking for some niche market and have found some regions where less than 10% household has got good internet. we have done some work in marketing and sales plan. I need to know the cost analysis as you know most of the investors want to know about it. I will be thankful if you can help me with start-up cost. But I don't need towers cost as we are planning to lease a wireless infrastructure. Please help me with cost analysis.thanks

And the investors are getting what they pay for !!!
The wireless infrastructure is what makes a WISP a success or a failure. The management administrative overhead can be leased.

Re: Initial investment for setting up ISP

You've got to include your infrastructure costs in some way or other. Tower companies I'm familiar with won't just rent out the tower as a percentage of your revenue.

Also, if you're in an area where broadband penetration is very limited, you'll be building your own "RAN" (by the way, that's a cellular term...this ain't cellular). If you could lease it from someone else, they've either got a significant share of the potential market or they're incompetent and you wouldn't want to lease from them anyway.

I apologize if I'm sounding rough here. However, as someone who has built a business plan for a wireless ISP in school (one-year MBA-type program, so yes I know what a SWOT analysis is)...and no, I wouldn't run an ISP off of that business plan at this point because it's out of date (things move fast in the industry when you're sitting still)...it sounds like you have some additional research to do before you ask broad questions that amount to "do my homework for me."

Got one question back at you for starters: what do you think "the ISP cost" encompasses? Put another way, what pieces of the puzzle do you think that you need? Don't be offended if someone links you to Streakwave, DoubleRadius or Baltic Networks...the vast majority of the equipment that you need for a WISP setup can be found "off the shelf" with published prices that aren't just list prices. This isn't traditional telecom where one provider (and only one) serves an area, picks a vendor soup-to-nuts and chats with a dedicated rep every time they need something.

That's similar to what cellular companies call a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) or telephone line reseller Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC). They just buy the wireless/wired service and resell it.
