It depends on how much he wants to pay for the setup.
When I worked at megawire we would put a 900 Mhz antenna pointing at the location. It will go through quite a few trees, but there are of course limits. The only way to know for sure is to try. I don't know what the story with 700 Mhz lately, but that will go through the trees very well, If you can find gear that will support 700 Mhz.. You can call Tomy Pignatelli at Megawire. He was going to present for the group on the router station pro a while back, I don't know what happened to that.

Hi Cedric
A friend lives in the Internet 3rd world. He lives on a rural property north of Guelph and there are 6 properties in his area  that cannot get High Speed Internet due to the amount of tall trees locfated between them and the radio tower providing the service.

A neighbour has found these other companies and wonders if they can delver high speed internet and are they good companies to deal with. Your e-mail speaks well of two of them.
 
Thanks for your reply.

John

I've resold Packetworks internet for years, and I run my hosting operations on their network, so I know them very well, and may therefore be able to help answer questions there.  They've worked out well for me.

I'm somewhat familiar with Netflash, certainly like them quite well.  Both Packetworks and Netflash have been operating here since the mid/late-90's, and are well established.  I never did much business with them, since I had things generally covered by my Packetworks stuff, but over the years I have had some clients there, and they did good work in my books.

As for MegaWire, I only know the name; I don't have any clients on their network at the moment, and never had the opportunity to do business with them come up as yet, so I can't say anything there.

Anything in particular that you looking to suss
 out?  Is this for a business or personal need?  Looking for a generic DSL circuit, or hunting for particular bandwidth or features or wireless connectivity?  Interested the relative quality of business practices and such?
