Verizon wins waiver for high-speed service

WASHINGTON: The U.S. Federal Communications Commission has freed Verizon 
Communications from rules onhigh-speed data services it sells to 
large businesses.


The commission granted a petition from Verizon to ease regulations on 
fiber-optic services, such as Ethernet applications and virtual private 
networks that businesses use for purposes other than Internet access.


Verizon's petition was granted by default because the commission, made 
up of two Republican and two Democratic members, failed to rule on it 
before a deadline of noon on Monday.


The order was circulated 3 weeks ago by the chairman and was not 
resolved, an FCC spokesman said. $@ (Bloomberg)

Dawn

Seems we are really dipping down.

I knew what she was talking about, and although she
did certainly end up with a double-entendre by mistake,
I kind of figured the adult road would be the way to go.

But, i digress...

Victoria, I did the Air Force - we were the ones that
softened up the OPFOR, and then let the Marines tag
along to do the cleanup..

2006-03-21 Thread Dawn

Chris,

As quoted from Michael Copps Statement;

Universal Service: By failing to act, the contribution base for 
universal service could be put in jeopardy. Rural America relies on the
universal service fund to ensure they have telecommunications on a par 
with the rest of the country. Without it, too many places would
not have phone service, much less the possibility of broadband. By 
pulling a whole swath of services out of the obligation to contribute,
universal service could be on newly shaky ground. This will only enhance 
the urban and rural divide in communications, at a time when

the Commission should be doing everything in its power to bridge the gap.

/
Interconnection in Rural America/: By failing to act, interconnection 
in rural America may be needlessly endangered. Rural carriers
tell us that where Verizon’s access services to the IP backbone are the 
only option in remote areas, rural carriers will be subject to
unchecked market power. This could mean higher rates for rural consumers 
whenever they want to interconnect with the rest of the

country and the rest of the world.


Regards,
Dawn

Re: [WISPA] FCC/Verizon forbearence ruling

2006-03-21 Thread Frank Muto
The FCC's Martin is giving away the store and is allowing a complete 
meltdown of the TA 96 Act. By far, this does not enhance competition as 
mandated by Sec 10 of the TA 96 Act. I'll agree completely with this 
statement below:


The chairman's action yesterday represents the height of irresponsibility 
by a federal official, said Earl Comstock, head of the Comptel trade 
association, which represents smaller phone companies. With this action the 
chairman's has unilaterally abdicated the commission's responsibilities with 
respect to oversight of Verizon's common carrier service offerings. As a 
result, competition and consumers are now at the mercy of Verizon's 
financial self-interest.


And in my opinion, this may not just stop with wireline services and 
broadband. Just think what will happen if the RBOC's go after shutting down 
free spectrum availability. The key issue here is broadband and if Martin 
keeps up with his political and personal agendas, the competitive landscape 
is going to sink as fast as the Titanic.

[WISPA] Muni wireless

2006-03-21 Thread Matt Liotta
I personally don't much care for Muni wireless as I would rather the 
government stay out of the ISP business. With that being said, Rome, GA 
announced that GTS had won the the contract to install a wireless system 
for the city. See http://muniwireless.com/municipal/bids/1102/ for 
details on the announcement.


What I thought the list might find interesting is that we (AirInfinite, 
now One Ring Networks) were included in GTS's bid and will now be 
providing backhaul for the wireless network. I believe this is an 
interesting approach for WISPs to take when dealing with munis that have 
an interest in wireless.

In this case, GTS is the company who is dealing with the City of Rome 
and won the deal. We simply convinced the integrator that we were the 
best option for providing backhaul.

Two things would be very cool:

2. If more WISPs would offer wireless backup services to businesses.

2006-03-21 Thread Jonathan Schmidt
I've been watching this and been very curious about the
perspective a Bell company could have about backing up their
always-up wires.  Is that really a concern anywhere...
especially in a modern, below-ground, highly reliable 
infrastructure like is installed in Las Vegas?

The only thing that worked for the mayor in New Orleans
was the group of Ham radio operators who brought in battery
operated Ham equipment using gateways to the Internet that
Hams provide to their own.  So, in the case of a total 
wipeout of all infrastructure, that works.  The mayor got
his e-mail.

My backup is my cell phone.  My Internet backup is my laptop
Bluetooth-to-my-pocket where my cell phone is always ready
to provide it Internet access.

Something is not as it seems.

That WiMAX may be going in for other reasons...perhaps.

I bet if you could get a listing of what and where it was actually installed 
you would laugh.  They release these type of Press Notices to make sure 
their names stay in the public eye.  I would bet that they have one or two 
small AP's setup to do some minor testing with that are not even available

have always had un limited B/W beaming from a 30 story roof a few blocks
from City Hall as well as many other pops. . All my clients that run on
generator stayed up and running throughout all of the mess with the
exception of a backhaul antenna that got blown off a roof in new orleans
east. . I blame it on the city for not having the proper redundancy in place
but thats just my opinion. You can ask Embassy Suites, Holiday inn select
and all my other clients. They all had communications. When I did finally
sneek in I got CNN and many others data and voip that they desperatly
needed. Well, the whole crew is staying if there is a next time so just give
me a shout down the street and Ill get that E-Mail going for the Mayor . Joe

Re: [WISPA] Article: BellSouth WiMax correction

2006-03-21 Thread Peter R.
First off, it wasn't offered in Vegas - that is where the TelecomNext 
show is this week, where BST announced that they will be lab testing 
WiMAX gear. They use propriety wireless gear in select test towns from 
Navini to offer broadband. And have now announced that the wireless 
would be for backup/redundancy.

LAS VEGAS—BellSouth Corp. unveiled a pre-WiMAX wireless broadband 
back-up system for businesses’ Internet connections. The carrier said 
the system allows customers to activate a Wi-Fi hotspot at a business 
location, with a WiMAX backhaul, in the event the wireline network goes 
down.


The add-on service will cost BellSouth broadband customers $30 a month. 
BellSouth says the service will offer downstream speeds up to 1.5 
megabits per second. The company initially offered the service in 
Athens, Ga. and has since deployed it in several other cities where it 
offer WiMAX services, including New Orleans and Gulfport, Miss. The 
company plans to expand the service to more cities this year.


“BellSouth recognizes that customers are increasingly in need of 
redundant access services,” said Randy Roberts, BellSouth’s vice 
president of consumer devices and wireless. “With Wi-Fi from BellSouth, 
businesses can distinguish themselves and offer a convenience to those 
who are working or surfing the Internet at their business location.”


ATT Inc. recently announced its intention to acquire BellSouth in a 
transaction that, if approved by federal regulators, would close within 
about a year
