Host a website (or several), mail, nntp, etc? Help out the wikipedia with their bandwidth needs? Run a game server for your employees? I'm not sure I understand the question.

Also, your signature is doing it the hard way. Micro$oft > /dev/null 2>&1

ok... sorry more specific... my boss was (and still is) trying to set up as a wireless ISP, but due to some *cough cough* setbacks... and is stuck with the fibre and no equipment yet to sit on that fibre to generate $$$, I am trying to help him out by finding ideas as an interim

Hmmmm ... Nothing super easy comes to mind. hosting for local businesses is the thing that springs to mind. Hosting is *very* competitive now-a-days, but some people get the warm and fuzzies by having their server in their own town.
