Sure, it's not like we can't put more than one Canopy backhaul on the same channel.

So you're using a 20 mhz channel to support one business client? Brad

We rarely use multi-point systems for customers and when we do they are either small businesses with very little voice and data needs or they are just data customers. All of our customers with any significant amount of voice are running on dedicated radios. I would say our average customer buys 12 lines of voice and delivering that over a Canopy backhaul works just fine.

So you agree then that being able to do VoIP is key. I'd like to hear more
about your experiences with VoIP. Is your solution actually doing it well
is that your idea of doing VoIP well is 8 only concurrent calls per sector
so long as the quality is decent for those few calls? We have talked to
very users of other common 5GHz brands these past few week and we have been
consistently told that performance is just dandy until you bump up against
calls. That is a less than 50 call per cell limit, which does not seem like
enough to justify the investments needed on the NOC end for the softswitch.
How do you define good VoIP performance Matt?

Matt, to further your comments that you see WISPs providing layer 2

for carriers.

We have multiple CLECs and non-CLECs buying layer 2 transport from us now. All are used to buy alternative access from fiber providers and therefore fixed wireless was a naturally next step. Further, almost all indicated they would have done it sooner, but the fixed wireless companies they approached weren't willing to offer them layer 2 transport.

How about VoIP? How many of you consider VoIP to be an
important part of your service future as a WISP? If so, how do you plan to
support since it cannot be done decently with the other popular 5GHz
solutions. That's not my opinion so much as the opinion of many larger
Trango and Motorola WISPs I have been talking to lately.

We are doing a significant amount of VoIP now. We have VoIP customers running on top of both Trango and Canopy radios. Canopy is a significantly better solution for VoIP since we can properly prioritize voice with Canopy, while we cannot with Trango. We also wholesale VoIP to other operators and help them --if they require it-- with getting their network ready to support VoIP.

If a key goal of WISPs is growing ARPU, what are WISPs plans for doing
with whatever your current technology permits?

I believe VoIP is the number one way to grow ARPU and the fact that we bundle VoIP is why I believe we have one of the highest ARPUs in the industry.
