yeah, how about allowing any wattage on ptmp links in exchange for the
tax, THAT i'd like.

I like the idea of offering to be taxed for something in exchange.
This way at least we get something WE VALUE instead of settling for
something stupid later on. I've been playing a lot of poker lately.
First to act usually wins the pot. Let's try acting first. Always

Sorry to reply to my own post here but I forgot one important part of
this I meant to include. Under this policy we would suggest that
unlicensed spectrum would remain absolutely free of charges. The fees
would only apply to all un-auctioned whitespace in all bands across
the entire radio spectrum that are neither currently assigned or
unlicensed for other uses..

How about if we propose to the Congress that they allow a per base
station license to be paid annually for broadband use that gives
first in rights to those who launch broadband in a given geography
in the channel registered for each base station? Then everyone would
have the ability to have access to spectrum with some rights to
prevent interference and have something that investors could be
comfortable with investing in. This would eliminate the spectrum
class split we have now where some have rights of licensed use and
others (like us) cannot play in the game without using spectrum with
no spectrum rights (unlicensed). The government could have the
revenues they demand which they normally get from auctions which I
oppose due to the inability for smaller operators to have a chance
to buy in.
Just a thought.

Well, it does not surprise me that the government has decided to
