  1. The Broadband Stimulus Bill...Round II

    by , 03 Feb 2009 at 2:49 PM (Anvil Partners, LLC -- The Wireless Forge)
    What's it going to take to create a realistic broadband stimulus bill that will work?

    No one seems to really know, and trouble is, no one is really agreeing. Congress is in the middle, trying to write a broadband stimulus bill that doesn't have a solidly stated goal, has few if any objective definitions, and doesn't contain any mechanism for reporting progress...

    I can't think of a single business plan or project that could survive, much less succeed with that kind ...

  2. I don't think this is what Obama had in mind...

    I saw this and just couldn't resist putting it out there for folks to read...Peter King (R., NY) needs to get a clue...

    This is not the kind of change America is looking for...there are heavier issues to put to rest, and I don't think this is the best answer for the problem anyway.

    There's better, more important work to be done than this...

  3. CTIA trying to add 'Shot Clock' language to Wireless Broadband Bill

    Local Zoning Orinances Could be Federally Pre-empted.

    We have a new president, and in some cases, new representation in congress. We're facing unprecedented economic stress, and localities are facing myriad challenges to delivering public services -- from gutted budgets to RIFs to even elimination of entire departments.

    So naturally now is the time that the wireless infrastructure industry steps forward and introduces language into the broadband bill to pre-empt local ...

  4. OK -- so I'm finding some interesting things in the news

    C'mon -- it's 2009, times are tough and it's ok to let it all hang out -- at least that's what the news is looking like.

    Delay in the deployment of DTV could slow down other products industry wants to offer -- like live video to your phone, etc.

    Obama's support for national access to broadband didn't exactly warrant any inclusion of that initiative in the $6 Billion 'broadband bailout' -- at least if you pay attention to his transition team...and the FCC's appoach ...

  5. Ticks in the newswire...or is that the wireless news?

    by , 07 Jan 2009 at 12:57 PM (Anvil Partners, LLC -- The Wireless Forge)
    We've reached a watershed moment -- the internet is now officially more preferred as a news source than newspapers...I predict tightening the belt on family budgets will result in folks dropping the newspaper rather than dropping their internet connection. The fact that many folks are switching over to bundled services may catalyze that transition.

    The death of the general circulation newspaper -- is it possible? And while we're asking, what about the land line telephone...? ...
