Well first you need to think of serving 1000 people with any system
(wired for example...)
That is a lot and require enterprise class network, specially with power
Then you have to accept the fact that in wireless, a regular access
point will accept no more than 30-50 users comfortably....
Even the powerfull ones that WISP uses will accept no more than 100
(e.g. Ubiquiti Rocket M (n mimo 2x2 with Airmax) and mimo 2x2 clients
with Airmax, which is impossible.
The router will scale to the lowest level of 802.11 used, normally "b"
at 11Mbps which make 5.5Mbps full duplex to share among users (30 to 50)
So, no a easy , or even possible thing to achieve...?
