Patrick, Scriv and Matt L. on this list are both knocking on the door of 1k subs.

Shoot, there's a wisp in Karney Nebraska that put on 1000 subs in just over a year.

There are a LOT of 1000 sub wisps or those VERY close to it. Shoot, I'm out in the middle of nowhere with lots of competition and I'm almost up to 300. We have no funding and do no advertising. Business has to fall in my lap.

I totally believe at least half of the pew numbers.

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.

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!
