You've not answered the question. Is "no cost" more important to you than "internet access"?

Note that "no cost" -- especially if you're effectively "stealing" the service -- can go away at any time. Turn down the XMIT power on the AP and suddenly you need another 6dB in your antenna, etc.

If you're willing to PAY for access, I'm sure you can find someone (Hughes, BlueSky, and, no doubt, other "semi local" wireless providers)

[It's 2+ miles as the crow flies to my ISP's transmitter and my monthly payment ensures I have service when I want it!]
