Man’s DIY Internet Solution For Daughter Spreads Across Marin Coastal Town

A man moved to coastal West Marin partly to disconnect from the rest of the world. But then his daughter came home and said, “Dad, I need high-speed internet for school.” Big wireless companies didn’t offer service in the area, so he got a pricey fiber line.

Nebraska ISP Delivering Ultra-Broadband Experiences for Business, Residential and Educational Solutions

Opinion: FCC needs to open airwaves so rural, tribal Americans have broadband access

We live with a stark digital divide in the US since a significant proportion of citizens cannot access high speed broadband. This impacts access to education and services, jobs, business opportunities, as well as reliable communication. A new Broadband Access Coalition of internet service providers has joined forces with consumer, schools and health care advocacy groups to petition the FCC to open up the airwaves for spectrum best suited to a new, superfast broadband service for the whole of America.

Google studying 3.7-4.2 GHz band for variety of applications

The 3.7-4.2 GHz band is substantially underused by the satellite industry and Google is studying how much more intensively the band could be used for a variety of applications, including point-to-multipoint deployments. Brian Hinman, CEO and co-founder of Mimosa Networks, said the concept of “flexible use” spectrum that has been talked about at the FCC for a while now is a “complete fallacy.” Flexible use ultimately doesn’t happen because when operators pay that kind of money for the spectrum, they can’t afford to provide affordable service for consumers who need fixed access at home. And the U.S. would lose the opportunity to have a competitive market for fixed access if it were to go that route.
