Brad,

Although, your response is politically correct. I turn the question around....

If you had a $1000 a month ARPU customer link, and a competitor shot a PTP 100Mhz link through you, not caring that you were going to get brought down, how would you handle it? It happens, reported many times on this list, over the years. Would you just give up the $1000 buck a month, and shut down? What about when you contacted the other party, and they would not work with you to resolve interference, because they thought their link would ultimately win? When you knew and advised them there was a solution that would allow you both to work? What would you do? How would you amicably handle it?

I have little respect for those that do not respect others, and they deserve anything that comes back around to them. And my responsibility is to my subscriber, that I made a commitment to deliver reliable service to. I will take any measure required to protect my subscriber, within reason that I can get away with legally, as I am contractually obligated to deliver quality of service and uptime to my subscriber. People may not admit it, but there are very few providers that would not defend their network, if and when they had to.

PS. I don't really have an Equalizer on the shelf., I made it up to prove a point. But every WISP on this list knows how to make an Equalizer, if they wanted to.

Wow Tom.  That comment is really out of character and your emotions must
have gotten the best of you.  Doing what you suggest with your "Equalizer"
is going to get you in a boat load of trouble one day.

Best,

Brad

If our link is up, and we see new interference on it, we go after the
interferer until they move. I can tell you, if someone puts up a radio
using all 100mhz of spectrum, and it happens to cross one of our
cellsite or subscribers taking them down, the offendor's link will be
taken down (made unusable) within 24 hours, that I promise and
guarantee.  Why do I say that, because I'm follow your advise Bob,
business is business. What comes around goes around.  I got a radio on
the shelf that I call the Equalizer ready and waiting, and 200 class
A/B roof tops to create a ligitimate PtP link to take it down.  NOBODY
is above/invulnerable to interference.  And a tech is fooling
theirself is their strategy is they are always going to deploy smarter
than the next guy. We all have the same gear available to us.

The above both in your suggested course of action and the fact that you
state it on a public mailing list easily searchable by Google almost
ensures a law suit should you ever take your suggested course of action.
There are numerous better ways to deal with interference and/or competitors.
