Re: Initial investment for setting up ISP
said by LLigetfa: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.
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.

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