In doing my research on starting a WISP, I learned my biggest challenge will be trees. They are everywhere in this town, and they are stupid tall.


@redeagle Would a mesh network that doesn't need line of sight be an option?

@KuroKuma Not for my goals. I want to start out the gate with 50Mbps speeds. Each hop in a mesh tends to slow down the connection. More so if the connection needs to work around obstacles.

The higher the frequency, the harder to penetrate objects. With 5Ghz, they'll bounce off trees to any which way and slowing everything down.
