Last year around Jan. a local company went bankrupt doing wireless because they swindled away their earnings on illegal things, drugs, gambling and other things and since went into hiding. Leaving behind all their equipment. They got tower access from the city by providing certain city officials with free wireless so they got off cheap. But the biggest mystery is where they actually got it from. I know it was from some where in st louis and it bounced off a repeater in another city some 40 miles away (supposidly) and its another 30 miles from there to here. But my wireless knowledge is somewhat limited; can you even broadcast a signal that far? And how expensive would it really be? Wireless is not as fast as a hard line obviously but doing some random surveying with people over the past year who come into the office still would like to have it. I haven't had anyone tell me no so far. Lots of people would like to do away with DSL because they don't want a phone line but have to have it for DSL requirements. The cable company supposidly went bankrupt as well but still providing service somehow. Cell providers provide wireless of course but isn't cheap. How far can wireless technically travel when it isn't sent out in a omni-directional pattern? Other red tape that I have to look into of course but I'm just curious mostly.
