I'm working on a WiFi/WiMAX system to service Shutesbury/Levrett.    
Current plan is to bounce a signal from 1 Federal St. to Mount Tom  
and then over to Mount Toby.  I still  need to find antenna  
placements and I'm evaluating some hardware vendors.

I plan on using licensed frequencies for the backbone they are more  
expensive but much more reliable. I'll most likely use 900Mhz for  
distribution to the home so the 2.4/5.7 Ghz stuff in the home won't  
interfere with the service.

I have a chunk of money coming in from a state contract which I can  
use to get a wireless system established.  Hopefully all of the  
budgets work and I can do it before years end.
