I didn't realize that was what you were looking for; that's about the 
numbers I got 2 years ago for a 12,000 passing 100% deployment over a
3 sq mi city.  There was a lot of good information in those threads if
you're contemplating doing this from scratch; look for a couple threads
started by me in late 2012; July or on, I think.  Can't remember the
titles, but they oughtta stick out.
