Probably more than the whole cast made total. Is a one of a kind though
Without the time and resources to do it right the answer is simply no. You would have to write it on your own. I owned and operated a small ISP with dialup, DSL, and 4 different flavors of wireless. there exisits no central management tool. You're best bet is to find a decent customer front end product for billing, ticketing, etc probably a commericail product would be best. Then use open source products to monitor your network(s). Either way you will have to do some glueing together of things as state above using the APIs and scripting. It can be done, but by the time you plan, write, and implement, your production network will have changed and so will your requirements.
I was an ISP for 10 years in a Rural area with 40sq miles of wifi coverage. It was nothing but headache. Licenced is the only way to go if looking at wireless. Putting fiber to the home is the only real solution, but is not going to fit in your budget. There is no profit to be made and only headaches to be gained. I still own part of a fiber optic company now if that tells you anything. Best thing to do is see if you can get Verizon to put a tower close by and use LTE.
This is total Michigan propaganda. the Big 3 have been dead for years. They know they are on a sinking ship. Before they hire all these on shore IT folks could they please pay double back the bailout monies from profits made by overseas branches only.
13GB used just by the initial install??? Wait until service pack 3!
Must be because MS is diligently "re-writting" something very similar to the app trying to get published. Nah MS has never done that.
That's not a bug for the bank, that's a feature!
Pure and simple... economics. There isn't a billion hearing aids sold a year. Compare the number of hearing aids sold to the number of gaming consoles or tablets or any other electroic device. Companies are out there to profit and not just keep the doors open. If you have a staff of 100 and have to keep the doors open selling 100,000 devices a year instead of 100,000,000 how much do you have to charge. I bet you you complain about how much you are paid, but don't realize the economics behind how much you are paid and why and don't care you just want to get paid. Well so does the guy selling you a hearing aid, groceries, gas, tablet, etc. Ohh and you have the government and insurance companies involved in hearing aids... There's your sign.
sosaited writes "It has been widely believed that our ancestors originated out of Africa, but a paper published in Nature by Carnegie Museum of Natural History scientists puts this in doubt. The paper is based on the fossils of four primate species found in Asia which are 40 million years old, during which period Africa was thought to not have these species. The diversity and timing of the new anthropoids raises two scenarios. Anthropoids might simply have emerged in Africa much earlier than thought, and gone undiscovered by modern paleontologists. Or they could have crossed over from Asia, where evidence suggests that anthropoids lived 55 million years ago, flourishing and diversifying in the wide-open ecological niches of an anthropoid-free Africa."
No I was not using tiered pricing. Your provider may be using flat now, but it will change. It might actually save you money. All the ISPs are trying to do is make the abusers pay for what they use and the normal users pay less. But obviously the ones that complain the most are the abusers. I'd like to see you give me one rational and legal reason why you would need to download 100+GB per month. There isn't enough time or free content to justify it, PERIOD.
Bandwidth cost money... real money. Unless your upstream provider is stupid and or sucks, you pay a fixed rate per megabit every month for a fixed amount and a per megabit for bursting over. If you think you can do it better, come up with a better model and kick their asses. And for god sakes quit whining about your CHEAP connection. Want to see expensive go to a 3rd world country. As a former ISP, and as less and less mom and pop ISPs are out there, if it could be done someone would already be doing it. Japan and other densely populated countries have a significant advantage... They don't have to run thousands of miles of fiber to reach thousands of customers... The can run a couple of miles and reach a 100,000+ customers. AND they don't have every tom, dick and harry complaining and stopping them from cutting up streets to get it there. They just do it because the government lets them. I know I used to live there.
Ohh and if someone could do it cheaper.... they would. END OF STORY.
Thank god I'm not an ISP any more. 150 bucks for unlimited 8mb down services is cheap. Let's see... If they are buying it at $10 per megabit, that is less than a 100% mark up not counting the infrastructure it rides on to get it to the NOC. That's not counting what it cost to build the network to you or what it costs to keep it running. If your a BW hog stop making others pay for your downloads. Don't want to pay higher... don't download every thing on the planet. It was always a funny balance with broadband... the only users/abusers that wanted faster connections were the ones normally downloading illegal music, movies, and porn. Now the media/content owners want to protect their content and make you pay per bit. Their going to get paid one way or the other. Why do you think they became/bought ISPs or are in bed with them? Uhhh DUH...
The ludacriousness of the subject says it all. No one caused that girl to kill herself, but herself. Sure it was an evil thing to do an karma will catchup with her, but there were obvious signs that were ignored by her parents and if anyone is at fault it is them...
As a former ISP that provided broadband in rural areas there just aren't enough users to support pricing the users see marketed at large markets, so the initial setup costs and monthly recurring charges are going to be higher in rural areas unless they are subsidized some how. Getting good bandwidth(DS3 and higher) to rural areas is also very expensive. I can buy 100mbps for ~$20/mb in a large metro, but in Qwest land a DS3 is $36 per mile and that is just for the loop. If you have to go any real distance like 100+ miles that gets expensive quickly and adds to your per megabit cost. So a full DS3 at 100 miles is $3600(+taxes etc) + IP servies. The local loop is more than 100mb in a major metro. With less population density the economics don't add up. The only way to cost effectively provide broadband in Rural markets is via wireless. Customers in rural areas do not want to pay for Wireless installations because they see the pricing marketed in larger areas for $0 installation costs. Users expect wireless to work like their telephone. Wireless has more associated problems and is very expensive to maintain. They also can't reach every customer due to line of sight issues. I have a friend that works for a rural telco that still charges like $30/mo for 128k DSL. Its because their IP connectivity costs are are over $200/mb/mo. Until good connectivity DS3 or higher can be pushed to rural areas for less than $50/mb the price of broadband in rural areas cannot come down.
