Correct. The example I provided is point to point. The signal must be distributed from there. My main point was that It has the potential of connecting rural areas. Notice that some of the items have built in solar power as well. That could potentially help with power failure concerns. I expect there is a ton of other technologies out there that we don't know about.Thank you. Maybe I'm misreading, but it looks like that's a point to point system (ie: your transmitter antenna and receiver transmitter have to be pointing directly to each other). So yes, you get distance, but just to a single point.
