Can I create a cellular network for my own personal needs?

Hi there.

My question is this; Can I create a cellular network, for my own cellular needs? I need to be able to make 160 simultaneous calls to a 10 digit number in Iowa that last 8 hours each.

I need to be able to use 7 million minutes per month and Straight Talk, Verizon, MegaPath, Comcast, 8x8…none of them can accommodate me, so I am ready to just build my very own cellular / voip service for my needs.

Can it be done? Can anyone help me? I’m 20 shades of green and drowning looking for an answer.

There is OpenBTS, http://openbts.org/ I’ve heard of it being used at Hacker conventions and Burning man to set up cell networks. I believe you would need a license from the FCC for your radio equipment to use it.

It’s out of scope for this forum however.

I would advise consulting the FCC before using anything other than a type approved cell phone that can transmit on cellular radio frequencies, in the USA.
