Internet -- broadcast 10 miles

I have two business locations, one is inside the city and has good 50mb connections, the other is 10 miles away from any service, except for AT&T expensive bonded T1s, AT&T said their nearest fiber is 8+ miles away and that they WILL NOT build it out, even AT&T resellers say the same.

What http://www.ubnt.com/airfiber, etc device and 20' antenna/etc can I get to broadcast a connection 8+ miles away to my VERY remote location ?

I have only seen that done with line of sight dish antenna systems. I once helped hook up a Motorola Canopy system for about a 7 mile line of sight wireless extension. It is not cheap to do this.

Canopy appears to have been taken over by Cambium Networks.

I can't imagine that point-to-point wireless system over 8 miles would be cheaper than a T1.

I'm not a long-distance wifi expert, but this site should be able to help you in your calculations:

WiFi won't go 10 miles. That is why I suggested Canopy. I have seen that work.
