Re: rural area not the city

If that were true it would already be deployed. Wake up.

It is true, and I would have deployed one in my rural ISP's service area 5 years ago if they would have gotten their act together, gotten the rules out right away, set the approval standards, and started actually approving devices. Instead, they have made about 1 year worth of progress in the last decade, and all the companies who WANT to offer broadband to the rural areas that are too expensive to wire are stuck with nothing that really works well for a last mile full of forest.


I agree with jcremin. As a WISP in a rural area I would have deployed it years ago had it been available.
