    Your link wants to download an APP of some sort. Not sure if anybody should do so? Is it a mistake, or a hijack?

    Ok, I checked again and it pulled a "fooly" on me. It's an Acrobat pdf file called "APP". lol

    Can't trust downloads blindly...

    Their ground antenna is a phased array! I worry about the cost.

    People only care about the on-going monthly cost. IF it's cheaper than the present Robber Baron cable conglomerates, it'll do well. It'll stop the exclusivity of only a single coax-wired company in an area. People will be happy to move, and screw over the old guys, like they've been doing to us for years...

    We need the competition. I think they could offer triple play offerings and compete with cable everywhere. This type of service is a game changer in my opinion. They could even request funding for internet grants in rural areas possibly. Cellular Phone reception can be picked up in rural areas where cell phones don’t currently without lots of towers required.
