12 is fine all the time? or only in a power outage situation? The supplied power inserter is 24 volts I think, possibly 36.

Looks like Skybeam's hosted speed test may bypass the service plan speed caps.

Never said no internet. Skybeam has yet to go down on me yet, but I do get occasional connection resets during the night.

This was the main reason I jumped ship when a new WISP entered the market. I could pretty much pinpoint when a disconnect was going to happen. It was that consistent.

SkyBeam is pretty good here, just freaking expensive at $71/mo.

Where are you located? Our business ( 8 mi W of Sanger ) is currently using SOL Broadband...which has been great, but we're paying $70 for 8 / 2 (residential rate).
