Infrastructure wireless mesh networks offer an elegant potential solution to the last mile problem in providing widespread broadband access, yet there remain significant challenges in deploying such networks in a cost-effective manner. Each subscriber in the network is able to forward traffic to/from their near neighbors, hence providing additional coverage. Here we consider the relationship between consumer demand and coverage, together with the requirements for dedicated network infrastructure. The simulations of consumer subscription decisions presented highlight the importance of considering the take rate for the service in evaluating the potential network performance. This motivates a multi-objective optimization algorithm to determine the optimal locations to deploy seed nodes in order to improve coverage with minimal investment.
