We are technically rural but in reality we are high density suburban.

Subject: Re: [AFMUG] Typical Cell Tower bandwidth requirement

I would've guessed they'd want more like 200-300meg at most cell towers, but 
100meg in a rural area really doesn't surprise me.

  I was talking to a Spectrum employee yesterday as he was installing a 1gig 
fiber circuit for me and he started talking about how un-common it was to be 
seeing a 1 gig DIA circuit installed so i said well what about the cell phone 
towers, don't those all have a couple gigs to them and he said. "Oh no those 
usually only have 100meg fiber feeds to them." I was like whoa, thats all? And 
he said "yeah all the Sprint, T-mobile, and At&T towers that he's been to are 
all like 100meg and he's like usually the Verizon ones are about 300meg 

  Does that really sound possible that a cell tower is only using that much 
bandwidth? We are pretty rural here county population is only 45,000 and the 
city populations are only about 12,000. Can this really be true? And if so why 
can't a WISP sell a backup circuit to a cell tower with some Air Fiber
