While the 50% reduction in bandwidth is the most qouted limitation of single radio mesh networks, there are others related to the fact that all radios share the same channel and hence the network as a whole is extremely vulnerable to channel interference from adjacent networks or external effects. More on this is described under:

With the plumetting costs of radios, there is really noo reason to not look at multiple radio infrastructure mesh solutions are shown under:
