Can you offer me any advice in setting up a small ISP offering a wireless solution?

I'm looking into starting a small ISP setup to cater to about 1000 - 2000 customers. I want a wireless solution and I'm not sure where to begin. We do not have a "line of sight" for each customer, so a "non-line of sight" solution is preferred. Please advise me on the type of hardware I'd need.
Don't put the cart before the horse. Start by educating yourself on what it takes to become a wireless ISP. You will find plenty of links to get you started at ISP-Planet's Wireless ISP Handbook. You might also want to attend a class like this Shorecliff WISP Workshop. After you have a solid understanding of the WISP business and deployment alternatives, you can select hardware that will meet your specific needs.
