Tonight, I connected to the internet, over my Verizon MiFi's 3G connection. I did this from a little over a mile away.

In my quest for inexpensive internet, I am establishing an 802.11a link with my office from my apartment. The distance for this link is around 1.1 miles. Tonight, with very little actual aiming and signal optimization, I was able to get around 45 Mbit of performance out of the link. The hardware I'm using is rated at 300Mbit over 5 miles, so I'm sure with a little bit of work, I can get that speed up to a limit where the bottle neck becomes the wires in my apartment.

Here's to living in the future!
