Hopefully, the 8% (6,000,000) figure includes ONLY end-users who use
wireless broadband to get to/from their home and NOT the end-users who
have a copper/fiber-based (cable/telco) broadband connection to their
home and then use a Wi-Fi router/access point that provides the "final
50-ft" connection wirelessly.
There's so much sloppy and innacurate "journalism" these days that I
need reassurance that the article means what it appears to be saying.
If there are 6,000,000 end-users and if there are 5000 WISPs then each
WISP would, on average, have 1,200 subscribers. I'm not sure that this
passes the "sniff" test.

Check this out from the Pew report. It appears that fixed wireless is much
bigger than what even I thought. According to this report 8% of all broadband
connections in the US are delivered via fixed broadband wireless. That means you
guys! Woo Hoo!
