But of course it's the backhaul ...

But of course it's the backhaul ...

"But it struck me that there's one key difference between most free and fee hot spots: a T-1 one. Many of the fee networks have decided a T-1 line is the basic level of service they want. Speakeasy Networks will sell you a T-1 for about $650 per month with unlimited bandwidth in many parts of the country. Other providers, with different assurances and network configurations, could charge much more. But evn at $650 per month, you've got to recoup $20 per day just to pay bandwidth."

This is part of an interesting exchange of comments on Glenn Fleishman's Wi-Fi Networking News site.
