    Cheap and ubiquitous broadband wireless access is what most of the operators are aiming for. This paper analyses an innovative proposal to extend the traditional fixed coverage offered by residential broadband into an urban wireless coverage using urban residential wireless fidelity (UR-WiFi) project. UR-WiFi assumes that by giving some incentive, the broadband customer would extend his surplus broadband and wireless bandwidth for public usage. The study performs a feasibility study of coverage, capacity and interference modelling based on different 802.11x technologies. In-depth technical analysis is complimented with detailed analytical and experimental data and is extrapolated on a countrywide basis. Based on results, we believe UR-WiFi provides a viable option for next generation broadband wireless access.
