Yes, I believe I was looking at all 900 products.

If a 100 pack is 295, a 500 pack (buying group) might just be affordable for ma and pa WISP.

check if you are comparing apples to apples. 900 Mhz units are much more expensive.

Have fun, whatever you decide.

Double Radius has 25 pack for  : $8,500.00  double to 50 pack and it 17k

Will you please tell me who the Canopy major supplier is so I can avoid at all costs.

The 100 pack is THIRTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS cheaper at double radius.  HOLY CRAP!

Unless I am reading something wrong.......

I think WISPA has expressed its disinterest in a 'buying club'. However, if members on this list want to organize a 'buying club' - I'm all for it. Its clearly one of the reasons you will get your ass kicked by the telco and cable company - they have buying power and can get what you want and buy in 10s and 20s  for 1/2 the price.

Next to FCC, my biggest concern is that my *COSTS* are higher than Telco and Cable. Aside from the totally defunct Anti-trust activity of our government, *COSTS* are going to kill WISPs off. Hardware is a part of that overall model. The rest of the costs are contained in my business.. and I'm happy to talk about that with other WISPs at the *first* WISPA meeting.  In fact, I'd likely talk about it at ISPCON as well. (would be my third talk there). Our industry really needs to pull together to achieve higher efficiencies (how to run a WISP), better pricing (buying power), improved governmental rules (FCC and others through a louder voice).


I don't specifically reccomend any of this equipment. Get some and figure out if it works for you on your own dime. :-)

Want a relevent example: a single 900 Mhz Subscriber Unit = $725. Buy 500 and get them at $444 instead.

Would he give WISPA a good rate?  Anyone interested could get quotes and maybe he could cut us a break?  I want this trade association to get some members services so people have a reason to join.  With added services comes members and money.  With members and money comes "pull" at the FCC level.  Then we get good stuff from the FCC and WISPs rule the world.  *Right Brain* Lets do what we can to get more Principal Members.

You would think it would work that way, but Volume Buying ends up eating the organization and the organization becomes caught up in being a volume club.
