These guys are buying WISP's like crazy - the connectivity market in the main metro's is quite saturated. There is good money to be made in all the forgotten rural sites and small towns.

True, I'm with Breede now, it's some times all you can get out here, some WISP or another. Fibre is like a very far off dream for us in the rural areas. Wonder how long before the Fibre guys realize, they should bring the fibre to the rural areas, too.

Not enough density to make a positive business case - it will only happen once the metro's are fully wired up, and even then it will be the most dense and affluent parts of the small towns.

Villages will never see fibre, just doesn't make sense - a robust wireless service will suffice.
