Yeah...that is really the crux of the problem. Every WISP I know would 
switch over in a heartbeat if the upfront cost was the same as deploying 
many well know 5.8GHz systems. Battling with interference in the 5.8GHz 
can be tough at times, at least with the 3.65GHz range there is some 
control over frequency use, but even so, dealing with frequency use in 
5.8GHz is worth it for the cost savings.
