Dylan,

So who was it that spoke at the conference in Milwaukee?

Michael J. Copps
Commissioner

or

Kevin J. Martin
Chairman

Regards,
Dawn DiPietro

The way Chairman Copps talked about it at a recent conference in 
Milwaukee, I got the idea the auction might be approachable for a 
small business. Cellular market areas would be a WISP's (or consortium 
of WISPs) best bet in terms of number available (734 - we're bound to 
get at least one ... right?), size and demographics - but they are 
also some of the most valuable because they allocate 2x10 MHz channels 
vs the 2x5 MHz channels of blocks C-F (B gives 2x10 for 176 economic 
areas). 

And then there's the question of what to do with it. Huawei was the 
first to announce UMTS gear for 1700 MHz. I haven't heard what else is 
in the pipeline. It's a crapshoot. But the potential is awesome.


Re: the 2x channels .. does this mean two licenses will be rewarded 
per area? Or one license will get both? Or both together make the 
thing duplex?


Best,

Dylan,

Not a problem. Always glad to get things cleared up that way 
misinformation does not get passed on. I actually read that same article.

$848k for control of a 2x10 MHz chunk over a fairly large rural area for 15 years is not bad at all. If one's winning bid were $1 million and they received a 25% discount as a very small business for a total payment of $750k, that'd work out to just $50k/year. Of course you need to have to pay out *now*, but my god that'd be a bargain!

If I read the documentation correctly, the minimum bid for 1 10MHz chunk is some rural area is $848,000.00. Hardly for small companies.

I disagree. Any and every WISP should be interested in offering mobile voice, data, and video as a complement to its fixed services. Subscribers *will* want it. Best,-- Dylan Oliver

I'm going to be devil's advocate and take that further. There's a soon 
coming day when the 700MHz and EBS/RBS/WCS(2.3/2.5GHz) folks finally 
figure out what equipment and standard they want to go with(3G/UMTS or 
mobile WIMAX), then they're going nationwide, and fast. The underfunded 
WISPs will be in for a tough one...
