2018 Preview: Shared spectrum to be in the spotlight

Carriers are likely to experiment with shared spectrum, unlicensed airwaves and other strategies to boost capacity as data usage soars.

FCC Overturns Net Neutrality

The Federal Communications Commission has overturned net neutrality rules, saying the regulatory framework will go back to the “light-touch” that allowed the internet to flourish for nearly 20 years. The rules were voted in in 2015, also to increase transparency requirements for consumers. The FCC said the new vote also covers “robust” transparency requirements that will work for consumers and help government better oversee the conduct of broadband providers.

At times, workers have used the fire extinguishers stored in emergency packs in company vehicles to douse hot spots they see along the way to fixing infrastructure. The company uses licensed and unlicensed gear from Mimosa Networks.

West Marin man creates DIY internet for community

One of the trade-offs you make when you move to the peace and quiet of a rural community is that you say goodbye to big city amenities like high-speed internet service. But not in West Marin’s Dillon Beach. A seaside enclave in the far northwest corner of the county, Dillon Beach is perhaps Marin’s most isolated community, and yet it boasts a fiber-optic, high-speed wireless internet service with unlimited data for a flat fee of $50 a month. There’s no charge for installation or equipment rental, either.

FCC votes to end net neutrality in major deregulation move

The Federal Communications Commission today voted to end Obama-era rules governing the Internet, rolling back net neutrality principles and paving the way for Internet service providers to begin to either slow down or speed up some parts of the web.The decision to end neutrality didn't come as a surprise. Under the new leadership of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, President Donald Trump's pick to head the agency, the plan to erase the rules were telegraphed well in advance.

US repeal of net neutrality will start mobile debate

The decision to repeal Obama’s Net Neutrality ruling has pitched the technology industry and consumer groups into a state of fury – unless you’re an ISP that is. The broadband providers, rubbing hands with glee at the thought of the money that’s now theirs to make are, for the moment at least, statesman-like on the issue – promising nothing will change. But ranged against them are just about everyone else: the tech giants, the internet pioneers, consumer groups and just about every other member of society – 22 million objections to the decision were received by the FCC, objections that were rejected out of hand by the commission as they dismantled the regulatory apparatus to give the broadband providers what they want.

Fixed 5G, The Prequel: Starring AT&T And Verizon Wireless

When it comes to 5G, one thing is certain—“fixed” 5G is the prequel to mobile broadband 5G network rollouts, expected by 2019 to 2020. Recently there’s been lots of talk about fixed 5G. What is it? When will it be available? Why should you care?

FCC repeals net neutrality amid criticism from politicians, startups

The Federal Communications Commission voted Thursday to repeal Obama-era net neutrality regulations that guaranteed equal access to the Internet, a controversial reversal that drew swift rebuke by companies and politicians in the Bay Area, where many advocates for the rules said they counted on them to protect Internet users and foster the growth of startups.

FCC votes for net neutrality guidelines in a new package

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and his team voted in favor of reversing 2015's utility-style regulation of broadband Internet access service.

WISPA applauds FCC’s vote on repealing net neutrality

Among those who consider themselves in the winner’s corner after Thursday’s FCC vote: the Wireless Internet Service Providers Association (WISPA), which had argued for a “light-touch” regulatory approach to the internet. The FCC, as expected, voted along party lines to end the rules former Democratic Chairman Tom Wheeler passed in 2015 designed to ensure a fair and open internet. At the most basic level, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said that by repealing the rules, they’re restoring the light-touch framework that has governed the internet for most of its existence.

Now that net neutrality is dead, the question is: Will it help healthcare?

While FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai claims overturning rules regulating the Internet could be a boon to telemedicine and add bandwidth to underserved areas, many people working in the industry say that’s a stretch.

David-vs-Goliath Battle Ahead for CBRS Spectrum, Better Fixed Wireless Broadband in Play

The FCC will vote later this month to explore rule changes for the 3550-3700 MHz spectrum band, known as the CBRS band, including the possibility of larger license areas for longer time periods. According to supporters, CBRS spectrum rule changes would facilitate the deployment of 5G services. But such rule changes could make it more difficult for rural carriers to obtain licenses to support fixed broadband wireless service in remote areas where high costs have prevented the deployment of traditional wired broadband infrastructure.

Can Fixed Wireless Fix Rural Broadband?

It doesn't matter whether you're a telco, a cable company or a software giant with designs on the ISP market, everyone is hoping that new wireless solutions will cut the cost of providing broadband to large sections of the country.

MWC Americas Preview

Mimosa will demo 5G Fixed solutions including the MicroPoP (suburban) and GigaPoP (rural), with an emphasis on the cutting-edge Spectrum Reuse Synchronization (SRS) software. The traditional MicroPoP consists of point-to-multipoint products, where access points reside on telephone poles, or something similar, in order to reach homes. The GigaPoP relies on access points placed on towers and clients with longer-distance capabilities, as homes are more spread out in rural areas. SRS fits into these solutions by allowing base stations to smartly reuse channels across the network, solving the high-density fixed wireless challenge. This means less spectrum is needed to deliver 5G Fixed solutions, as well as faster speeds for the subscriber.

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

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.
