McCaw puts Clearwire in his backyard: Craig McCaw’s neighborhood sucks for broadband; the dirty secret is out. Although when you pay millions for a home, you might not mind $650 per month for a T-1 line, which is almost certainly available there. (The neighborhood is most likely part of the old GTE territory which had very weird landline service problems.)
Hunts Point has a median income of $180,000—average is probably $50m given that Microsoft CEO and billionaire Steve Ballmer lives there—and just 500 residents. McCaw proposed putting up a 41-foot antenna in the form of a flagpole, replacing a slightly shorter flagpole.
