A shame you don't live in Milford/Forrest Hill ;-) Was looking at doing a wifi connection with a friend but don't have line of sight.

All jjnz1 should have said in his op was that he would use the word Uber when providing these connections (ie Uber Communications) and everyone would have just said "yeah, cool - he's being disruptive in the marketplace."

Yeah, if these old incumbents like Snap can't adjust their business models to keep up with technology that allows disruptive uber-people to easily share broadband connections, then they should go out of business.  

Or something like that.

Someone should offer residential plans with a "sharing addon" that makes it all legal/ToS compliant/etc.  Most of the ISP's costs are for the last mile, after all.

Unfortunately I imagine the uptake would be tiny and the support overheads would be a real headache, as once such an option was advertised there'd be a flood of non-techies trying to share with their non-techie neighbours...
