There is going to have to be a compromise here guys. We will not be putting together the composite subscriber data for the FCC. There are no provisions for it. We can ask but then quite frankly I am not too keen on telling them that most of our members here seem to be reluctant to tell them

Pre-answering for John here I have sat in on a few meetings with FCC officials and spoken at FCC events regarding rural broadband, and it is pretty clear that the people from the FCC I talked to wanted to see WISPs provide competition to cable and DSL, especially in the underserved areas

compared to me, you're the big guy, but then, we had someone come in and file for loans and grants. The filed for every area for a hundred miles in every direction, to prevent anyone else from doing so. They claim to have never used a single dime, they just prevented anyone else from doing it.

Interesting. I kinda view my business in the same light. You know, the 'lack of leadership in broadband' is such a myth. But that doesn't prevent it from being beat to death politically. ALL of these are taking from subscription (not availability) figures. American consumers do NOT choose to

Why not set up a website on wispa.org that would collect the data - anonymously? Collect all the data they want through the organization and send them the database or the raw data. This would give those that did not want to follow the guidelines an alternative that the FCC may accept.
