http://hartfordbusiness.com/news2485.html Part of it is kind of interesting - as soon as the city announced the $20.00 a month fee, the commercial providers dropped their prices to compete - so the city uses tax dollars to provide the service for free, which will do nothing but hurt the

To add humor to everyone's life I'd like to share the start of my day. At about 3:20 am, a dump truck decided to disconnect us from our 480 Volt 3 phase shore power. Fun? Sure ! Pictures available at http://mattke.net/d3/ Video now posted on You Tube !

We do, and have been commercially selling 802.16e (mobile-ready WiMAX) - called BreezeMAX 2300 and BreezeMAX 2500 all through this year. In the licensed pmp space, especially for .16e systems, the answer of average cost of AP and CPE is not so simple. There are many types of CPE and there really

Maybe a very rough number for a fixed/nomadic type base station (360 degrees) might be around $40k. WOW! I think I will stick with unlicensed for now. The idea of customer provided CPE is alluring, but its not that tempting for me. -Original Message- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED]

Hi, I recently found a very cool, fairly accurate web-based speed test program. You can get a trial version off their website at speedtest.net. It's Flash based (on the client side only) and runs very well under linux and apache. The catch is they want $400 PER YEAR for this program. Has

Travis, Yea, we actually host one of their public speedtest.net sites (Grand Forks ND), the only requirement from them is you have at least 40 mb upload. The most popular locations see a max of 10 mb/s usage, in bursts. You can also get some interesting reporting (IPs and speeds) from them

Scottie, If you think the base station is expensive, then you'd pass out knowing how much it'd cost you to get access to just 12 MHz of either set of spectrum even in a rural market. Put it this way, a big city would carry a price tag well into 8 digits. - Patrick -Original Message-

That's a very simple process Scottie, which is achieved using the FCC Web site. From the home page of www.fcc.gov, go to the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau area (choice on the right, scrolled down a tad), then go to License Search (also a choice on the right). Specifically, go here:

The band generally called 2.5 refers to an almost 200 MHz collection of spectrum divided up about 60% as non-profit EBS (educational broadband service) spectrum and 40% commercially auctioned BRS (broadband radio service) spectrum. These were formerly called ITFS (instructional fixed television

The research takes time and will probably result in dissapointment of an organization wanting too much money to sublet it or a cell company already got it. If you find a school that hasn't already leased out the spectrum or isn't already in talks, it is possible they don't even know about it
