Hello. I'm building a house in rural area with limited options for Internet connectivity. DirectTV-based Internet is not an option with the lag and Verizon's EV-DO Wireless Internet Access user agreement renders it useless. But three miles away from the residence is a cell tower providing the EV-DO service. I contacted the cell tower owner and was told it would cost me at most a couple hundred per month to mount a WiMAX antenna on the tower on the lower tiers. Anyone have experience when dealing with tower operators? I'd have to also arrange for power and the DSL connection. As I said my residence is3 miles away. Not in direct line of site obviously. The tower's base is at 14 meters above sea-level, where as the residence foundation is approximately 21 meters. The curvature per mile of the earths surface is 8 inches per mile. I'd prefer not erecting a tower at the residence, but the roof line of the house is roughly 40 feet above the ground . So, internet- wise where do I need to go, if I want to attempt wiring all this up myself. Get the appropriate antenna for the tower, a weather proof utility box to house I'd suppose the router hardware and the DSL modem, and the antenna and hardware for the home? Has anyone attempted something similar? Read any articles of the same? What other discussion board or forum might I also ask these questions or surf through in order to come a more informed understanding as how to pursue this effort?
