Anatomy of a Rural Wireless ISP

Brett Glass, a longtime reader who more often than not disagrees with pretty much everything we have to say about network neutrality and other bandwidth issues, is a man who speaks his mind, loudly. His point of view is shaped by his experiences. He’s been offering wireless Internet service in Laramie, Wyo., for a very long time. In a lunch at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, he talked about how he built this ISP. It is a story of grit, hard work, logistical nightmares and frustration. Glass’ story and what it entailed is captured on video. You can watch or download it from the Berkman Center’s web site.

So while we may not see eye-to-eye on many issues, we found his story worth sharing. Hope you can check it out. There’s also an accompanying presentation that you might want to watch as well.
