So you want a wireless network with a distance of more than 37 miles. I would recomend a dedicated leased line like frame relay or T1 depending on number of users and bandwith requirements. To successfully do the wireless you are going to have several relay towers and numerous factors like weather and attenuation that will adversley affect the signal over distances. This can be done but most likely it will not be cost effective at all. Mainly due to the towers you are going to have to use.Satellite may be an option but I am not familiar with the costs.

Before you start looking at hardware, I suggest that you look at the cost of securing the air rights for your signal.

Even if you use a narrow band system that works on line-of-site, you need to secure rights from ALL property owners along the path to the airspace.

Next, because of the curvature of the earth, you will need to get approvals for the appropriate height towers at each location.

Then, (in the US anyhow) you will likely need to get a license for the frequency band and power required.

All-in-all, it will likely be less expensive to work with your local utility companies and get a dedicated fiber-optic line installed.

A dedicated line will be orders of magnitude more secure than ANY wireless system.
