Yep. I am him.. Sorry it took me soo darn long to reply.. I haven't been on this site in awhile.
I'm still looking into building this Wireless Service. There's been some advances in Wireless technology which allows me to possibly cover up to a 20mi radius. Also, increases in speed would possibly allow other services to be available.
I'm currently talking with Mid-Rivers and Bresnan on a decent Internet Backbone and possibly partial digital cable capabilities. Ya never know, but the possibilities are endless (Digital Phone, TV, and High Speed Internet though secure 11g or 11i Wireless).
I'd like a few people to vote on that they'd want, and if they think it's a good idea. I'd like as many people to reply to this as possible. I'd like for us to leap ahead in technology instead of lagging behind.
I did notice about speed.. The speed I would like is 1.5mbps Up and Down. Basically, you can send stuff as fast as you receive it. It'll be as fast as DSL or Cable.
Another thing is cost. I'm not in it to severely rip people off. If I can get my backbone at a low cost (I'm not going with a T1, that'll cost me around $1500/mo), I'll pass the savings to the people.
Example. If I can get (4) 1.5mbps SDSL lines at $70/line ($280/mo), that'll quadruple my speed, and also be cheaper to run (saving $1220/mo). I can then pass the savings to you (like maybe around $29/mo). I'd like to also employ a few people to handle antenna installation and equipment maintenance.
