Agreed. 1534k to the client is something I have yet to see on Waverider. Setting the GOS (Grade of service) to 1024k and setting the queue in Mikrotik to 512k seems to work reasonably well. YMMV.

I wouldn't bank on the 1.5 Mb per client unless you want to dedicate a

sustain.  It makes the business model unsound as well.

The 900Mhz pricing has always been higher than 2.4ghz 802.11x on price. Probably always will be. What 900mhz buys you is NLOS performance. 900mhz links will cut through trees that 802.11b only dreams about. I am not sure how well the new Ubiquiti cards running 802.11 on them will do with NLOS. Waverider is the 900mhz I am familiar with, and part of the positive things about it are the way it will retry packets up to 3 times before failing them. I don't think that 802.11 has a packet retry as part of its protocol. Another downside of Waverider (or any other 900mhz as far as I know) its that a Waverider 900mhz Access point (CCU) is only good for 2mbps total network throughput, and 1.5mbps to any one client.

Something needs to be done about this 900mhz pricing, at these prices I can justify setting up more 2.4ghz to get to these last mile

That is why I posted the request on 900MHz myself....

I am suprised that no distributors or manufactures has replied yet...

We are in the beginning stages of evaluating 900MHz for our wireless portfolio. I'm very interested to hear about implemented systems and what kind of max throughput and latency is expected. Any help is greatly appreciated.
