My name is Phil Farrand. I live two miles north of Crystal Cave and eight miles north of Springfield, Missouri. During the summer of 2006, I finally go tied enough of not having high-speed internet that I decided to do something about it. So, with the help of many generous friends, I built a 100 foot tower and the necessary Motorola Canopy equipment. I spent the summer of 2007 finding customers and doing installations.
And thus, zarks.net was born.
The business plan that I developed for zarks.net indicated that I could break even in three years with 25 customers. It worked out just fine. I was actually paid back in 2 and 1/2 years. We've been coasting ever since because I then turned my attention to writing and I haven't looked back. (But, honestly, I never intended to make this a career choice. I just wanted high-speed internet!)
On the other hand, if you are interested in high-speed internet and you live in the vicinity of farm roads 167 and 48 in Greene county, get in touch with Total Wireless at mowisp.com. I buy my Internet from them and they sell off my tower. They're good people!
Have a great day!
