Till recently I was only able to get 10Mbps down and 1.0Mbps up. A friend in town got fiber recently, and has a clear los to my house on the coast. He's allowed me to mount a dish on his roof. The ONT has 4 connections....so I setup an account in my name for one these connections and ran the cat6 shield to the roof to beam the connection over to the house.

More speed can be gained once I swap out the smaller dish (in town) with one showing in pictures.

I always enjoy reading these stories over on the Ubiquiti forums too, it's great to see people finding their own solutions to get better internet access.

Great job and impressive speeds, better than a lot of major city centers for that matter too :thumb:

I gotta say thats pretty amazing, I recently saw a demo of LoRa and the throughput was horrendous, transfering an image more than greyscale 50px by 50px would often be corrupted. But not only are your speeds amazing for a dish to dish network but your ping speed is equally amazing, I would have at least expected that to suffer but 6ms is pretty amazing.

Great job, though that has me wondering what sort of performance loss you may see during periods of say heavy rain or other more inclement weather.
