Last Mile Internet Provider

CvWireless was started 4 years ago in a small rural community in Northern NY because it lacked internet service for those of us living at the "last mile." 

We've grown to 70+ households with many home start- up businesses that otherwise could not live in our community including several Community Shared Agriculture farms in the mix.

Recently one of the transmission locations as seen in the photos is on a shared tower with a FM transmitter and unfortunately, the FM transmitter is creating issues for greater than 1/2 of my clients and internet is spotty and on frequent occasions unusable.

I am seeking money to erect a free standing structure away from the original tower to get my transmitting antennas away from the noise of the FM transmission, providing reliable service once again to community residents.  The cost is well beyond normal operating costs and the business is teetering on shutting down its operations off of this location if we can't locate funding to help defray the expenses.

This means alot to many people in the community that rely on internet to go about their daily business and who otherwise would be on dialup or at best satellite.  It would mean alot to me because I could continue to provide what I feel is a community service.
