Eircom to offer wireless access to their DSL exchanges

At the broadband conference in Tipperary Institute on Wed 2nd of June I learned that Eircom are about to launch a wireless product.
They will offer Line Of Sight to their DSL enabled exchanges, this should help to overcome the 5Km limits imposed by DSL. Unfortunately I do not have Line Of Sight to the DSL enabled exchange in Thurles, as Upperchurch is a village surrounded by hills.
I am doing some research into builidng a solar powered antenna unit that would be able to point into Thurles and down into the village. This may be the incentive I need to do some more work on this project.
