Thanks, George, we're really having a good time with this. I'll go off line with anything that even hints at commerce but feel relatively comfortable staying in my realm; how it works and other technical topics.
The vast majority of deployments have been in cable MSOs. There is a very small version for medium ISPs and large hospitality systems (collections of large hotels in destination areas with 1000s of users). In Korea they are interested in advertising to subsidize rate lowering and there, they don't seem to mind screen clutter...and, in fact, enjoy it. As I mentioned, in Europe, byte-cap subscriptions are the broadband norm and it's used to alert a sub to upcoming exceedance and an offer to upgrade...much better received before the cap is exceeded and the rate drops to dial-up speeds. It's hard to sell anything to an enraged customer. So, I'll go look at the commercial side and be ready to continue that part off line. I'm really not familiar with that part, actually. . . . j o n a t h a n [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://www.perftech.com -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] On Behalf Of George Rogato Sent: Thursday, December 28, 2006 1:07 PM To: WISPA General List Subject: Re: [WISPA] bits per mbps Butch Evans wrote: > On Thu, 28 Dec 2006, Jonathan Schmidt wrote: > >> been installed in very large cable operators.

I might add, that I can't think of anyone who would not want to have this available to them. Seems like Jonathan Schmidt has a winner!
