Wireless broadband has been growing steadily over the last few years, especially as the performance of wireless technologies has caught up with and surpassed traditional wired broadband infrastructure. One of the key enablers for this growth is the number of government grants available that can be utilized to fund wireless broadband initiatives. You may think that these grants are limited to certain types of organizations, or that they are too hard to apply for and secure to be worth the time. Fortunately, that's not true at all.
At Proxim, we have hundreds of customers that have secured grants of all kinds to either help fund their deployments or - in many cases - pay for the entire deployment altogether. As a result, we've compiled the following quick start guide to provide you with an overview of the options that are available to you today to help fund your wireless broadband network - as well as an overview of the many new federal grants that are now available as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act stimulus package.
