'people' is me.
note: posting here showed $270 quantity one Moto SM w/power supply on ebay for example.

Its just a thought. I've bought dozens and dozens of Moto SM radios near $260 each over the past 12 months all at 5s and 10s quantity. So it can be done, just wished it would be a bit easier.

I just wish people would quit quoting the Q100 or Q500 price to compare CPE equipment costs.

Quote the Q1 cost. We all know that one can do better in larger quantity. But most of us don't buy in Q100 or Q500.

Most of us do good to buy Q5 or Q10.

The high CPE cost is what keeps me from even considering Moto and such....

Now if only we could get Moto to stop working so hard against us at the FCC and to basically use the average wisp to support the biggest fo the big. After all, who's gonna need 500 packs of anything until you're pretty dang good sized? And how are you supposed to do that when your money is going to subsidise your largest competitors? I can certainly see a few point spread for volumes. But 30 to 50%? Not good for the industry. Marlon

    Someone asked a while ago about Canopy prices. The last post I
    did was on 900 Mhz - okay we all don't live in the Eastern US or
    other high-treed areas.

    Of course, if you are spending an average of 1 hour a month
    screwing around with each subscriber you aren't going to have a
    successful WISP either. Nor are you going anywhere if the FCC
    rules for spectrum always favor billion dollar auctions, unless
    you have a spare billion.

    Here's the same price for the much more popular 5.7 Ghz
    Subscriber modules. You can see dropping from $742.85 per unit to
    $261.00 per unit at quantity 100 gives the q100 buyer a huge leg
    up on the smaller operator.
