Man, that must be nice! I've got residential customers that get all bent out of shape when their tests drop below one meg, either way.

We have resi customers that get 3+ megs.  BOTH ways.

sigh.....  I'm in the wrong dang market out here!

But what the heck, we also get recommended by many of the computer shops, college IT guys etc. And we've got a few more loans to pay off then we'll start making some good money too.

Here's the part that's funniest to me. We're still doing it all (250 dialup subs, 50 fiber to the home, and around 325 wireless subs) with 1.75 people! Sure I pay more than I'd like to people like Butch and Keith to take care of my network. But I don't pay them for sitting around either.....

Once we get the debt paid off we'll be looking at a nearly 50% margin! Gotta love a business model like that.

WE provide Symetrical Business service with Canopy, why you couldn't ?

A Regular AP has 7 Mbps if you split 75/25 that translates to : 5.25 / 1.75

Why can you sell a 512/512 over that type of AP split ?

We use Advantage and have 10/4 MBps of capacity. My biggest Symetrical Plan
is 3 Mbps, any other Customer that needs 5 , 6 10 symetrical gets a
dedicated ptp link ...

The biggest reason we use Trango is because we sell our wireless service
as symmetrical. Even on the residential level, if they purchase 512k
they get 512k down and 512k up. So, if I use Canopy, I have to do a
50/50 split, which means even the Advantage product only provides 7Mbps
of "usable" bandwidth.

I would estimate 15% of our new signups for wireless are because of the
symmetrical speed (even though 99% of them never use it). Another 15%
comes from offering a real static IP address.

Of course you can also just string sync cables between radios for free.

True, but this is truly what makes canopy works and you have nice 3rd
options like and for the gps
units that start @ less than $300 for a 4 port Sync unit

Thanks for the reference to third party sync devices. I am not at all
happy with the CMM. I looked at the devices from the respective
vendors you shared. While they do look more in line with our needs
than the CMM I was wondering if you have seen any third party sync
devices that are rack mount and can handle 10+ radios. In fact,
handling 24 radios would be awesome for us.
