Default Re: Long range free wifi

I did this for years, the local Yacht club provides free wireless access for its members and is about mile away from me. I used either a high gain Yagi or dish depending upon what the conditions were at the time, I had the wireless access units mounted up a twenty meter pole and run POE and thus had very good efficiency. I got good connection speeds for the time and the network over the years was upgraded a few times.

In the end it was not so much that the service became unavailable its still there and I could probably hop back on it with little problem, however with the ubiquitous spread of very fast cheap fibre broadband my needs simply outgrew speed.
