Re: Other MSOs interested?
Dan, 

5GHz won't suffer the same fate as 2.4 because of its shorter range.  A unified, centrally managed Wi-Fi network like the MSOs are deploying will allow better spectrum managemetn in both unlicenced bands.  

More and more client devices and drivers are self selecting the 5GHz band. We see that in many of our installations.

Guess we need more wireless spectrum then, eh? Let's take more away from the TV broadcasters.

Re: Other MSOs interested?
Sounds like a great way to totally congest the public WiFi bands. 2.4GHz is pretty damn congested already, 5GHz will get there.

Other MSOs interested?
This idea of a nationwide or continent-wide network of free WiFi hotspots is pretty intriguing. Can and will European MSOs link up to do that sort of thing? How much will the U.S. model prove to be the standard? What do folks think of this idea?
