Scott.. that makes sense.. i think what we will do is have a button next to the CITY/ZIP filters that say, "SHOW SURROUNDING Wireless Internet Service Providers"
 
that will make sure the map is more useful... thoughts?
 
John, can we do this???

Some are typists, some are clickers.  Clickers don't type.  Not too hard to click on a state, click on a city and be close to home.  Just need to be able to see the WISPs that are in town.
I realize that you have drop downs for the cities, but as someone mentioned before, if I list my WISP as Richmond, then people in Webster, Williamsburg, Fountain City, Whitewater, Middlebourogh, Boston, Centerville, Mineral Springs, Cambridge City, Penville, Milton, Hagerstown, Greensfork, ... may not find me.  And that is in a 10 to 15 mile circle.  If they click on their town and get a 25 mile map with markers, they found me.  If they put in their own zip, they may not find me.

Which is what my original post was about as well.  I do not have a problem with how to enter, though I hope I can edit soon.  It is a pain for the potential customer.  I always tell the programmers that have worked for me, "I do not care how hard it is for you, it MUST be easy for the user".  Same here, doesn't have to be super easy for me to get my sites listed, but the potential customer should not have to work to find me.

If you click on ome of them then when you zoom in it stays homed in on the region. But then none of the other points show up on the maps, until you unclick on the first point.  Its still awkward.

Here is your next enhancement.  I am a customer looking for service.  I go to the site, click WISP (I know what I want) and click on my state. I would want to see some indication there are providers there.  Next click, markers, all the way in to the one I want.
