    Hi. Assuming we could get a signal, I was just wondering if people in Ashburn Farms would also be able to use Broadlands wireless broadband. We're equally broadband starved and some of us live pretty close to Broadlands.
    Thanks.

    Just my $.02 to say "ditto"...
    There is a fellow off of Claiborne Parkway who has a small WiFi setup, but he only has an IDSL connection to the Internet. Maybe he would be interested in being a "repeater" for those in that area.
    (I will be attending the May 7 meeting to find out how this hardware works and if a "repeater" is possible or necessary...).

    Actually this is a question that I will be asking CWC tonight at a meeting and again on the 7th at our community meeting. In my opinion, anyone within range - be they Broadlands resident or not - is more than welcome for the internet-portion of the service. You might be on your own for E-Mail and Webspace since those servers will be run by the Broadlands HOA. Or actually you may have to pay a little extra to get those from the ISP. There are a few very small 'communities' right next to us that don't have the huge amount of residents to form committees like ours to bring in a service like this. I don't see any reason not to add them. Getting a signal will be the hardest part, but if you can gather enough neigbors interested CWC may just put a local mesh router at your location. This may also need to be approved by the head HOA board.

    It's something that we will definately discuss!
