Just testing at the moment though, but getting pretty good coverage in the tests... my folks have farm land in the area, and I was ~1km line of site from my house, and still getting good signal with the USB wifi in my laptop the other night.
Was probably a bit odd looking, out in the rain, at night, on a farm bike, laptop in hand, waving a cooking dish in the air.
It's not perfect, but it's not intended to be, just good enough for those who can't normally get this sort of thing.
Have had a bit of interest to my personal email(dw not working yet, waiting on new server, one less thing to transfer) from geeks in the area, odd really, as this is the only place I mentioned it, and this place isn't overly rageing with visitors.
Oh yeah, in the interests of full disclosure, I am mates with Dan Clark(ex-scarfies/synaptic), and did do some non-paid for support work for them, other than that, no links to anyone except my wife
