Privately owned wide area wireless networking.

Why do we rely on wires owned by other people when the technology to connect everyone together wirelessly exists and is inexpensive.


Assume you live in a poor country, or somewhere in rural America so far out in the boonies that cable and DSL are years away. A main road passes about 20 miles from your house, and DSL and Cable both run along that road. Could you not run a simple 802.11B connection from point to point using unidirectional antennaes?

Could it not then be distributed from that point wirelessly to the neighborhood? This entire system could be owned by every member in the network. They would own their antennae and router, etc, and access to the network would be dependent upon them allowing others to connect to the network through their computer, which would be like a node I guess.


Straighten me out on all this.

I'm thinking about more sparcely populated rural areas.

I've seen some WMAN stuff before, but I think it was mostly about closely packed omnidirectional signals.
