Wireless Internet Security for multiple users with accounts


I am interested in starting a wireless high speed Internet service company.  I understand the hardware required, but there is one problem.

I do not want to give everybody in my city free Internet access.  How can I give each user their own account with a username and password, so that I can selectively turn people's Internet service on and off?

Is there any open source software that could be used?

You shoudl be able to use any radius based authentican setup.  I have used Active Directory to do this with a VPN using a PIX, but I don't see why you couldn't use a Linux based radius server.  You coudl also use MAC filtering to prevent others from using your setup.
