Re: Initial investment for setting up ISP

said by LLigetfa:

I still shake my head when I read about some WISPs providing sub-megabit speeds and some of the prices they are demanding for it. I left one WISP that provided only 512 kbps when I could finally get 10 mbps.

My "standard" plan is 768k for $40/mo. Show me a way to offer 5 megs for that price in this area without running myself out of business and I'd gladly do it.

Obviously there will always be regional variation. In my case the WISP that I switched to is also a cellular carrier that has lots of very tall towers and very deep pockets padded with government handouts. I'd say that may be hard to compete with.

They are also my upstream provider for my hotspot in town.
