Become a wireless ISP: for £300

I came across (thanks to Andrew Betson) an excellent description of a commercial UK local access point which can integrate with others via Wi-Fi to share broadband upstream access in a local area Become a wireless ISP: for £300. It refers back to the author Guy Kewney's own weblog article on the same topic. The basic tenet is that many have argued that mesh computing (sharing wireless connectivity with multiple uplinks) is a complex task, but this UK company LocustWorld (with products like MeshAP and MeshBox) may have proved them wrong. they even have s/w for normal Wi-Fi access points (like US Robitics ones) to allow them to take part in the mesh.
