Plano, TX Legacy: Fiber Provider or Wireless & Wireless question

  • From: Brennan_Murphy
  • Date: Wed Aug 20 16:57:39 2003

Looking for any advice or pointers for obtaining
multiple Gig links (last mile) in the Plano, TX
area.  The abundance of fiber options here seems
to be decidedly underwhelming. Looking for suggestions
including creative options such as wireless. I
need to get from Plano to any closest better place for
picking up multiple Gig Internet links.  Wondering
too what other large companies in this area have done
for large internet links...any advice appreciated.

Also, I'm reading now that more ISP's are using
wireless for last mile provisioning on the new
unlicensed frequencies.  Was wondering if anyone
had experience using Dragonwave or any similar
wireless products in Texas. Do sandstorms and
golf ball sized hail pose significant issues?
Severe thunderstorms?  Would like to chat with
anyone with significant wireless experience in 
the Dallas area. WOuldnt mind speaking with an
unfluffed sales person eitehr. :-)
