I live in Yuma, Colorado and the internet here is unbelievably slow. Now just to entertain my mind a little bit, lets say I wan't to start a ISP buisness. The towns pop. is about 3000, some of which can't afford internet, quite a few who don't wan't or need it, and then the rest are already tied up in one of the two ISPs in town. Now I wan't to be a WISP with speeds of around 20 - 100 mbs. Now how long, big, and expensive of a fiber optic cable would I have to run to be able to provide these speeds, where would I run it to, what kind of switches would I need, what antennas, radios, amps, towers, ect.
This isn't a super serious question, but I would like to know this stuff, just because, and I like large community pools so you don't have to be an expert on everything, but if you know everything about fiber optics, or wireless communication fill us in.
This information pool could help someone greatly so please share. You never know when a millionaire will decide to move to the middle of nowhere and wan't fast internet, so please contribute.
