ProxyHam | Hardware Proxy | Access Wi-fi from 2.5 miles away

A method have been devised that not only allow users to anonymously connect to public Wi-Fi network, but also let them connect from about 2.5 Miles away.
Security researcher Benjamin Caudill has developed a device that adds an extra layer of anonymity to whistleblowers, journalists, dissidents and, of course, criminals.

How Proxyham is made?

Proxyham is comprised of a WiFi-enabled Raspberry Pi computer, along with a three antennas setup. One antenna is used to connect to a source Wi-Fi network at a public place, and the other two antennas are used to transmit the Wi-Fi signal at a 900 MHz frequency.
By relying on a 900 MegaHertz radio connection, ProxyHam effectively connects to a far-away Wi-Fi, with a range of between 1 and 2.5 Miles, depending upon certain interference factors.

What ProxyHam do ?

ProxyHam attempts to add an entirely new layer to attempts to anonymize - by removing the user from the IP address' location. Instead, the router broadcasts on a 900MHz connection, letting the owner - with the right antenna - connect from up to 2.5 miles away. It can then be stashed in any public place with an internet connection, like a library, coffee shop, or co-working space.

Caudill will unveil this game changer ProxyHam box at the Def Con hacker conference in Las Vegas next month. 
Caudill is planning to sell ProxyHam at cost for $200, "as a service to the community," and he also hopes that he’ll be able to drop the price to $150 soon.
