<But how about it as an investment?>

Metricom just got $600 from MCI/Worldcom and Paul Allen, I use the product and love the service. The reason they are losing money is because they are just now building the networks and have some 30,000 subscribers estimated to grow to 100's of thousands shortly. Very shortly they will upgrade to wireless Internet access at 56k in December and then 128k next December. MCI/Worldcom and Mr. Allen own 87% of the stock so I think I am in good hands.
