    No hardware in form.

    If you are hosting both the Node and Gateway at your location you really need 150 upload as per the recommended specs on pages 3 and 4 in the

    Also, are you planning to purchase the recommended hardware (again found in the hand book on those pages)?

    Please clarify bandwidth and HW.

    Hi, everyone.
    Thank you for your feedback.

    HW - can be up in running in 4-5 business days as per requirements once application is approved. I can set up either option: node (station) and gateway (virtual host) or node+gateway (single station).

    BW - my broadband provider can currently provide bandwidth 1000/50 down/up.

    • Is this OK for BetaNet?
    • When Mainnet is supposed to commence?
    • Do I need 150 upload by Day 1st on Mainnet or 150 is projected max upload with graduate ramp up during 6m-1y?

    Based on your application and response, you have my vote!
