The press release doesn't reference at all, but Aeronet (the largest WISP
in Puerto Rico, and an operator of gigabit class service in MDUs) has been
testing Facebook/Terragraph 802.11ay 60 GHz based, point to multipoint last
mile stuff for a while now. Very short range, high speed, high capacity.
They use it in addition to a number of licensed band and 71-86 GHz PTP
Various 802.11ay based PtMP solutions are about to hit the market from 4 or
5 different competing vendors.
