+ - Setting up a small ISP? 1

Submitted by Mike_K
Mike_K (138858) writes "I live in a small condo building, and at our recent meeting we discussed the idea of sharing internet between the codos. The only problem is that we would rather not expose those actually providing the service to harassment from RIAA, MPAA, etc. The best idea I can come up with to solve this is to create a small ISP for our building and give everybody a static IP. I know enough about networking to be able to set this up, but I don't know anything about actually setting up an ISP. Can anybody help me with where to start looking? Would this ever be economical? Is there a better way to go? We are located in a big city with Comcast and Verizon being choices for consumer internet, and close to some big schools with lots of bandwidth, if you think that would help."

  • I'm a little uncertain about what information you need. I mean, you have to run cable all over the building and you have to set up your access equipment. The only difference is that you're going to want an ISP quality feed and it's pretty easy to find a feed, all it takes is money. So, what's your budget?
