 It has been proposed many times that Melbourne Wireless enter the Internet Access game.

 The ball is rolling in gathering ideas of if Melbourne Wireless did hypothetically offer some commercial services on the Mailing List. 
 
 !! Legal Requirements 
-* A Carrier License (From ACMA) 
-* Melbourne Wireless would need to be a Corporation to eligable for a Carrier License 
+* A Carrier Licence (From ACMA) OR Exemption (from the Minister) 
+* Melbourne Wireless would need to be a Corporation to eligible for a Carrier Licence 
 * It is most likely that a Spin-off company would be created for commercial purposes... ie: 
 ** 'Melbourne Wireless Association' - The community group of hobbiests dedicated to the Free Community MAN 
-** 'Melbourne Wireless Corporation' - The company that runs 'Melbourne Wireless' branded nodes that are covered under a Carrier License to provide Internet Access 
-* Melbourne Wireless (Corporation) would need to own the equipment to be covered under the Carrier License. 
-** Users that want to contribute to the running of Melbourne Wireless (Corporation), which would most likely be run on a volunteer basis would have to donate their equipment used for MW Internet Access to the Corporation. Provisions could be made where the doner is permitted unconditional control of their donated equipment and are permitted to revoke the donation if they want the equipment back. Generally the equipment would belong to Melbourne Wireless Corporation in name only.
