Pretty common, this is just a WISP (Wireless ISP) with a really bad website, they use point to point systems. It's very common in rural areas where its less practical to bury wire between houses due to the cost. They require a clear line of sight shot.

I use one in town right now, and it's worked fairly well but the neighbors tree keep growing and is getting in the way. I have had some problems in super super heavy rain and hail but most of the time the signal is good. The biggest problem with WISPS in my experience is the people running the company are not the best at at running their networks. I know there was a virus for Ubiquiti equipment (https://www.ubnt.com/) and they just let their stuff get infected so customers had to call in complain and then they would come out and reload fixed firmware to get service working. I also have had utilization problems, not enough backhaul on the towers etc.

Take a look at https://www.ubnt.com/ and see some of their air fiber stuff. They go pretty quick over a long distance.
