It's interesting to see how the wireless carriers are trying to compete with VoIP and (at the same time) leverage the broader coverage of broadband in areas where cell service is weak. On the cool side: A few of us here have been using T-Mobile's wifi service and GSM+WiFi phones for the past

The cell carriers aren't using G711. I haven't seen how much a UMA call takes up, but I'd bet it's less than the 90K of G.711u. UMA basically encapsulates a GSM stream inside of an IPSEC tunnel. EDGE traffic gets up to 100K+ when surfing or downloading files, so I could see a data stream

I'm no expert, but I have seen many towers with significant height that aren't painted. Heck, to that extent, buildings over 200' would need to be red\white, then. The best part about posting to large lists is how quickly third-party information is either substantiated or shredded to
