This agency will be responsible for dealing with hackers and/or spammers. Furthermore, they will deal with Cisco, their routers and switches, and will require the following: 1. Machine Access Code or MAC address be recorded in the headers and footers of all of the data packets from the original microprocessor device. 2. Be equipped with a Global Positioning System or GPS 3. Every data packet that travels through the ...more »
Everyone can offer up idea after idea on this message board, but we should all consider the agenda behind the "broadband expansion" effort. The "means" to the "ends" do matter. I think you would be hard pressed to find anyone who is opposed to having broadband internet available virtually anywhere in the country. However, there are two greater issues to consider. First, our national debt and the interest on the debt ...more »
Stop confusing Broadband with The Internet so that we can get a connected infrastructure instead of billable paths. http://frankston.com/?N=BI. Speed easy but availability is far more important -- 24×7×X×Y×Z wired and wireless.
A lot of people are poo-pooing the idea of of delivering internet over powerline because it isn't as fast as cable. Quite honestly I'm sick of hearing it--you know what is SLOW--dial-up and satellite! And the rural locations those are currently the only two options available at this time--unless you're lucky enough to get cell phone coverage--then you might even have the option of 3G -- hold the oohs and ahhs. While ...more »
Most of us know what purpose BitTorrents are used for. However there is no effective way of blocking BitTorrents without compromising on Net Neutrality. If the ISP provider charges not for total volume of data but based on direction of traffic it can be effectively addressed. Most of the users of BitTorrents generate abnormally high volume (factor of mangnitude of 100 to 1000) of upload data traffic, than normal websurfers. ...more »
Develop a National Council on Digital Inclusion with state councils like in WA State (www.communitiesconnect.org/about-ccn/faqs#codi).

Thanks to leading public interest advocates - here's a draft definition: Digital Ecology - An interactive, multidisciplinary inquiry of life in an increasingly digitized and technologically mediated environment. Digital Ecology explores how people interact with, are shaped by, and shape ...more »
As Comcast and Time Warner need a wireless strategy going forward they are starting to resell Clearwire's (CLEAR) WiMAX services( http://blogs.zdnet.com/BTL/?p=24012 ). This represents a stepping stone towards the most immediate available solution to developing and deploying a viable and sustainable national broadband plan. This also can set the precedent for any changes the new FCC will make surrounding the 700MHz band ...more »
I think it is time we separate data into 2 general groups, "large, static data" and "small, dynamic data." Satellite internet is OK for the large transfer of files. Latency isn't a concern and you could theoretically pump a ton of data per cycle, transferring a 1gig file in a short amount of time. But satellite sucks for the small stuff, like ever changing datasets on a map during online FPSs. Because of the 750ms ...more »
I think the broadband plan needs to incorporate--in economic analysis and in its promotion--the notion that pervasive broadband and digitial technologies may fundamentally transform models of economic investment and return through increased coordination and collaboration.
Put simply, the Internet-based "crowd" is changing the way we consume, inform, communicate, and produce.
