The current policy doesn't mention wires or any specific technology...
 As long as your wireless service  is to a fixed location subscriber,
and you can ensure the  service is for personal use, and only used at
their place of residence,  then they are a residential customer under

"2.13. Residential Customer -- End-users who are individual persons
and not organizations and who receive service at a place of residence
for personal use only are considered residential customers.

Now if you are delivering a wireless service, accessible for mobile
devices,  or wireless devices that subscribers can have installed
anywhere other than a residence,   then your service is  a
non-residential installation,  doesn't apply to the
service,  and that's how it should be.

The policy is _NOT_ about type of  networking technology,  there is no
mention of such things in the policy.    It's about who and where the
subscriber's  device is.
