Internet + LPTV = Rural Broadband?

Allowing a different modulation scheme besides those of NTSC or ATSC in a 6 MHz TV channel (that would have the same power spectral density and emissions mask imperatives as is currently required in a TV channel) would enable LPTV and TV Translators to do broadband. And would do so using existing infrastructure and existing licensed spectrum. No need for insentive auctions or repacking, and It would create large cover ...more »

Citizen's Band Network

The FCC should allocate a CB Digital Network band on 900 MHz to United States citizens. This network should go ~15 miles (or more) at speeds ranging from 1 MB/s (far) to 54 MB/s (close). The spectrum should be alloted, not the modulations, so they can change quickly. They should be lightly regulated, like the 27 MHz CB band.

Make sure phones WORK AT ALL when there is no connection.

Another helpful little feature would be allowing phones to AT LEAST do the useful PDA things stored on the phone when there is no signal/service available. I've had a couple of different phones that, when you are not close enough to a cellular tower, you can't even tell what time it is. You can't see your contacts (including emergency contacts). You can't see your calendar (and any reminders you set won't 'ring'). ...more »

Don't forget the backhaul connections

I'm a teleworker suffering from high-latency 3G access. I'd pay a lot for real Internet access instead of the low quality ATT and Verizon 3G - I have both since neither one works all the time. Part of the problem is the backhaul connections are terribly oversubscribed. Verizon, ATT are happy to sell lots of 3G devices, but building the infrastructure cuts into their profits. Create standards and requirements for backhaul ...more »

Bandwidth Squatting

Wireless broadband has the POTENTIAL of allowing true competition, assuming the radio bandwidth isn't all bought up and 'reserved' by corporations just for the sake of controlling it. If a wireless or broadcast company buys up radio spectrum bandwidth from the FCC, but then doesn't SUBSTANTIALLY USE IT, that bandwidth should be re-auctioned. In other words, if someone buys up all the VHF spectrum they can, just to prevent ...more »

'Unlimited'

If a carrier claims 'unlimited' broadband, why are they allowed to then LIMIT IT? Either by charging criminally high rates, or by cutting service off, or by other methods.

 

Make some definitions. You know, like 'unlimited' means 'unlimited'. See if they sell any '3G wireless' when they tell you that streaming one movie will blow your 'unlimited' download budget.

mesh networking infrastructure

Utilizing Mesh Networks in small areas to provide wireless service to remote and under serviced areas. Mesh systems can be added to existing line of sight utility poles to canvas a give area from one connection. Case in point we have seen complaints that high speed internet service is just out of range by using mesh systems and existing utility poles in a line of sight to position nodes for wireless reception large areas ...more »

Wireless Cell Broadband: Why $60.00 monthly + 5GB data limit?

I remember growing up in Chambless, Calif on old route 66, 10 miles East of Amboy. Only after someone died did the phone company install phone lines to the homes. Now, I reside in the Mojave Desert again and again face the same thing except it involves not having DSL or cable access. Our "tax" involves having to pay an additional $40.00 for the only broadband option: Verizon wireless. This adds up to a "punitive" fee ...more »

Spectrum for Broadband from Microwave Frequencies, not Broadcast

TO: FCC FROM: James Edwin Whedbee RE: Broadband Plan To the Commission: I am the owner of KZJW-LD. I continue to hear about suggestions by the Commission staff that the FCC intends to allow broadband providers to occupy television broadcast frequencies by removing broadcasters. After the digital TV conversion, citizens are having greater difficulty getting important TV broadcasts (like Tornado/Storm Warnings, ...more »

Eliminate Routers Entirely. Fund us at vator.tv/company/ether2.

In 2003, Buddenberg of the US Navy writes a paper entitled “Radio WAN Media Access Protocol” in which he outlined five requirements for a future radio-WAN MAC. These requirements would pertain to any solution, not just a satellite communications one. 1. The primary requirement is to discipline network nodes so they transmit one at a time. The solution space becomes restricted to scheduling and polling algorithms by recognition ...more »
