Long distance WiFi on the cheap


Recommended Posts

Surprisingly, this is exactly how my last ISP (NWE Bluebox) delivered its connectivity as this identical looking Ubiquiti antenna is installed on the gable of my house.  


It is really impressive just how far it sends the signal as I remember when an NWE technician was (unsuccessfully) diagnosing my connectivity issues and had the Air OS screen open on his laptop, it had a full signal reading (-65dBm if I recall right) even though their mast is about 4.5km direct line of sight. 


Now that I've cancelled their service, I'm curious if they will collect their dish.  Otherwise it could be fun to play around with...B)
