30% of what number Charles? How many WISPs said they have over 1,000 CPE. I
can only think of about 20 with that high a number. I'd like to be able to
toss around a better number if it can be substantiated, even anecdotally and
unscientifically like an honor survey.

Some interesting statistics -- 30% of the WISPs who attended our last WiNOG
"claimed" on their surveys they had been in the wireless business for more
than 5 years and had more than 1k wireless CPE deployed in the field

Less than 10% of them claimed to be "pure-play" license-exempt fixed
wireless providers

This is why we call them Wi- "NOGs" instead of "ISPs" nowadays

Don't forget, a lot of rural telcos / CLECs / ILECs (e.g., the "enemy") have
gotten into license-exempt fixed wireless...

P.S. - I heard a rumor that the current UL market leader, Motorola Canopy
sold close to $100 million in gear last year alone

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.
