I'm looking to start a WISP in the Wellington region in the next 1-2 years for initially about 50 customers with more to come later on. I'm looking for a 10Mbit+ internet connection to support this, and I will need a /26 block of public IP addresses. Getting 10Mbit internet isn't too difficult, but the data costs a heinously high amount. The cheapest price I could get was $1200+gst per month for 80GB of data alone ($300 more for the connection, which isn't a problem). So the ~150-300GB required would be a minimum of $2300 a month or so. Is there a cheaper way to do it? I would hope to pay more like $5-10 per GB.
Cable would be OK but as far as I can tell, no suppliers of it are able to provide more than one IP address (a Telstraclear limitation I believe).

Providing wireless internet services has always been a good thing especially for the business people as this is one of the best means available today to gain money. However what infuriates some such people is the lack of availability of internet protocol address also known as ip address. The problem is that it isnít available but the suppliers just wonít provide it and as long as they donít supply it the situation remains the same. I am not sure whether the telecom ID thing works either!
