[Tom's] Grandmother Gets Super Wi-Fi - Page 8

Sounds good to me. The speed wouldn't be an issue because my net is only 7.1mbps. Well, that's what it's advertised at anyway. The cables in the area actually only support about 5mbps.

fixed.

Also around here $50 gets you about 10mbps (If your in town). Us contry folk get screwed though. Time Warner doesn't want to give us internet, neither does ATT or Verizon. All three run right by the house. So we have LoS for $60 with 512kbps/up/down. Can't wait, LTE is suppose to be up and running within a month though. I will be paying $90 for 15-25mbps (around here I don't think the towers will be loaded down). That actually makes me happy sadly. I have been using my phone as a modem over our actual connection lately because I get 1mbps/up/down on it.

So the higher the frequency, the better the connection speed, but lower coverage area?

Wow, for those who actually understand the potential of the 50MHz-700MHz range, this opens up a lot of doors

Citation needed, as they say. Please define the resource that you are checking, mate, as the word "free" does not seem to have any sort of meaning stating "low cost", nor "easy/cheap to deploy". I checked dictionary.com (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/free) and Oxford (http://oxforddictionaries.com/view/e...m_en_us1248904). Again: Please feel perfectly free to define the resource you "last checked". I will PM this directly to you so we can continue this topic in the proper place, now.

Sweet, now we'll be able to hack WiFi that's blocks away rather than next door.

More WEP or Open WiFi routers please
