Municipal Fiber and the Digital Divide: A Modest Proposal

This is a guest post by Angela Siefer and Bill Callahan.

http://citiesspeak.org/2015/03/27/municipal-fiber-and-the-digital-divide-a-modest-proposal/

With a little effort, city leaders could develop account-sharing models and policies that encourage smart, grassroots solutions to the affordable broadband problem at little or no public cost. (Getty Images)

The explosion of interest in community-owned fiber on the part of elected officials and technology leaders has created an opportunity that few have noticed: cities could leverage these investments to help lower the barriers to home Internet access that still keep low-income, less educated and older citizens out of the digital mainstream. This could be easily accomplished, at it would cost cities practically nothing.

Here’s how: cities could allow neighboring households and community groups to share that terrific bandwidth – and its cost – by using community-owned fiber to power grassroots Wi-Fi networks.

Almost all Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and community-owned fiber networks employ Terms of Service language that prohibits customers from extending their networks across property lines to share access with their neighbors. City-owned networks can expand the possibilities for affordable broadband access in disadvantaged neighborhoods simply by changing their Terms of Service to allow network sharing.

As demonstrated by the rise of Google Fiber, the advent of city-owned networks selling 100 megabit or gigabit Internet access for $75, $90 or $100 a month raises the competitive ante on broadband speed and price for traditional cable and telecommunications ISPs. This is great news for tech-savvy middle- and upper-income residents, as well as for data-dependent businesses and community anchor institutions like libraries and hospitals.

But in many city neighborhoods, we’re faced with the stubborn fact that large numbers of mostly low-income citizens still don’t have home Internet access at any speed.

The American Community Survey for 2013 reports data for 575 U.S. “places” with more than 15,000 households. 282 of these communities – nearly half – reported no fixed broadband connections (defined as any connection beyond dial-up or mobile) in at least 30 percent of their homes. 151 reported that at least one fourth of their households have no home Internet access of any kind – no dial-up, no mobile access; nothing. Not surprisingly, these Internet-free households are concentrated in low-income neighborhoods where residents are least able to afford the $30, $40 or $50 monthly cost of an Internet service subscription.

Of course, low-income households that can’t afford current DSL or cable Internet services have little to gain from the availability of fiber broadband service that costs twice as much.

But suppose that cost could be split among five, ten or twenty users?

One of the great value propositions of Big Bandwidth is its shareability. There’s not much a single household can do with a gigabit connection that couldn’t be accomplished with a tenth (100 mbps), a twentieth (50 mbps) or even a fortieth (25 mbps) of that capacity. But put that gigabit connection into an office, a call center or library where forty, fifty or more users share it, and its value becomes apparent. All the users sharing that gigabit start connecting to the Internet at speeds far greater than their “shares” (because of how network routers optimize and balance packet streams) – and at a total cost far below the equivalent number of single-user accounts.

The economic advantage of networked access sharing has been so obvious for so long that no business or organization would even think about buying individual Internet service accounts for employees working at the same location – and no ISPs would waste time trying to sell them. Since home broadband took root a decade ago, the same has become true of households; we provide for our family members’ need to connect simultaneously in different parts of our homes with routers, network cables and Wi-Fi – not by subscribing to multiple Internet service accounts.

ISPs are happy to encourage all this access sharing within their customers’ premises. But they draw the line – a hard, bright line written into their Terms of Service – when it comes to letting customers share their network with the neighbors. The reasons are commercial, not technical; ISPs make money on account charges, and they don’t want their customers to get ideas about avoiding them. It’s a profit-driven business model.

But municipal broadband networks don’t have to follow that model.

Over the past eight years, cheap, modular “open mesh” Wi-Fi devices have transformed the possibilities for community networking at the very local level – the apartment building, housing estate or city block. Any building owner or group of neighbors can acquire a few of these devices for less than a hundred dollars each, distribute them at 100-200 foot intervals around a target area, connect at least one of them to the Internet, and start distributing robust, secure Wi-Fi Internet throughout the area.

Open mesh networks are providing public or “house” Internet access in thousands of hotels, apartment complexes, campuses and campgrounds. These networks are also found in some public housing estates and high-rises, installed by local housing authorities who understand the importance of affordable Internet for tenants’ income and education prospects.

There’s no technical reason why block clubs and community organizations in lower-income neighborhoods can’t use this same cheap, off-the-shelf technology to create truly affordable local broadband access, by sharing connections and costs among neighboring households. But unlike the people running apartment buildings, campgrounds and hotels, community residents will almost always find that Terms of Service restrict them from sharing bandwidth with their neighbors, at any price.

Municipal broadband providers can solve this problem with the stroke of a pen, simply by allowing neighborhood account sharing in their Terms of Service.

With a little effort, city leaders could take the next step: Working with neighborhood leaders and digital inclusion advocates to develop account-sharing models and policies that encourage smart, grassroots solutions to the affordable broadband problem at little or no public cost.

Screening and Panel Discussion of Documentary on Masculinity

Sunday, April 26, 4 pm

St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, 14311 Wells Port Drive (exit off I-35, west on Wells Branch Parkway).

"The Mask You Live In" examines contemporary masculinity. What messages do boys and men receive from popular culture, sports, and the media? What happens to kids when the traits that have been feminized are devalued over and over again? In this film, men from various backgrounds share the impact of their upbringing, relationships with their fathers, their struggles, and the deliberate choices they’ve made in raising their own children. Being expected to “man up” from a very young age exacts a heavy price on boys—and thus on girls living in a patriarchal culture.


More information about the film and director Jennifer Siebel Newsom’s documentary is online at http://therepresentationproject.org/films/the-mask-you-live-in/

Admission is $10. For more information about the screening, contact Heather McLeod, hamcleod@gmail.com

Manchaca Village Residents Get Connected at a Tech Feria

Austin Pathways, Google Fiber and Austin Free-Net recently hosted a Tech Feria at Manchaca Village to inform residents of opportunities to sign up for free Internet service, email and digital literacy classes.

Residents also entered a raffle to win prizes including T-shirts, water bottles and a refurbished computer, and were invited to voice their opinions during a survey conducted by University of Texas researchers.

Volunteers from the Austin 3-1-1 and the Austin Independent School District  shared a variety of online services and resources, like how to report potholes and schedule parent-teacher conferences online.

Studies show equitable access to technology directly translates into workforce development, education, social inclusion, health and civic engagement.

HACA residents will have access to free basic broadband Internet service as soon as Google Fiber is ready. Manchaca Village will be the first HACA property to receive Google Fiber. Austin Free-Net welcomed an incoming class of 20 Manchaca residents for six weeks of free digital literacy classes where they can learn basic computer skills including how to pay bills online, video chat with loved ones who live far away, or promote a small business through social media.

In November, Austin Pathways and Google Fiber announced Unlocking the Connection, a community-based initiative to help bridge the city’s digital divide and help families build self-sufficiency that supports economic independence through digital inclusion.

In addition, Google Fiber awarded Booker T. Washington Terraces with a 1GB Community Connection. Austin Community College has provided refurbished computers for households in HACA’s first six properties to receive free basic broadband Internet. Corporate philanthropic sponsors include IBM, Freescale, and Rackspace, as well as the Ford Foundation and the Open Society Foundations.

Austin Pathways invites philanthropic, corporate and nonprofit partners to join Unlocking the Connection. For more information about the initiative, contact Catherine Crago at catherinec@austinpathways.org.

The Road to Livingston

Austin Film Society TFPF Grant Recipient

Directed By" Erik Mauck

Produced By: Erik Mauck, Chelsea Hernandez, Sally Bergom, Emily Visher

"The Road to Livingston" offers a glimpse in to a world that many of us do not know exists. That of family members, friends, sympathizers, activists, and many others who know inmates on death row. By following one woman's efforts to visit her incarcerated brother, we are introduced to this world and the stories inside.


Delia Perez-Meyer is the last person you would guess to be inextricably linked to the prison industrial complex. This unassuming elementary school teacher takes a weekly journey, from the classroom to death row. This drive, taken over 500 times in the past 14 years, takes her from the liberal, urban place she calls home to the deep conservative territory known as East Texas. Delia, who is in effect the narrator of the film, tells of her personal journey beginning from a place of frustration to a place of acceptance and hopeful activism.

The Road to Livingston is finally available to rent/buy through Vimeo's On Demand service- please share with anyone you feel may be interested in checking it out: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/30864

It's all about me!
Introduction

I'm originally fron New Orleans, La but I've been living in Austin, TX off and on since 1995. Before that I lived in San Antonio where I trained as a Healthcare Specialist in the US Army.

I was one of the first soldiers to go public with their resistance to the Iraq War. Iraq Veterans Against the War formed in July 2004 which was the same month I was told I'd be going to Iraq. I became an IVAW member in January 2005.

I dropped out of school in 1982. Just before turning 17 a recruiter convinced the me to join the military. I left my home in New Orleans and spent 7 years on and off active duty between 1982 to 1994, which included two overseas tours. One in Korea and one in Germany. In 1993, while serving in the Louisiana Army National Guard I got the opportunity to train in San Antonio, TX at Fort Sam Houston. First as a combat medic and then as a licensed practical nurse. After my discharge in December of 1994 I decided to stay in Texas and work in the health care industry.

In September of 1995 I moved to Austin, TX. In August of 2001 I enlisted in the Texas Army National Guard for three years and the very next month 911 happened. I was a medic assigned to the 249th Main Support Battalion in Austin, TX. I got stop-loss orders in July of 2004 right before his very last drill. I was told that I was to be involuntarily extended and reassigned to the 56th Brigade Combat Team as part of the 36th Infantry Division and deploy with this unit to Iraq.

According to the army's stop loss policy they can make null and void any contractual obligation you have with the military and extends your service in the military against your will. Some refer to it as a back door draft. An activist from Austin Against War got the Austin Chronicle to print an article titled Jail, Exile, or Iraqabout my situation as an anti-war activist being ordered to war. And the very next day KTBC-TV, our local Fox News affiliate, requested an interview. The week I was supposed to report for active duty I announced that I was having a goodbye party. Most of the guest didn't know it but instead of reporting for duty I'd plan to run away. On the day I was to report to Fort Hood, TX some friends of mine in Veterans For Peace hid me at their house and bought me a bus ticket the next day. I went to Tennessee to stay with a friend.

I had decided not to leave the country because I didn't want to live indefinitely in exile. My plan was to hide out until my military unit dropped me from it's roster. Then I was going to turn my self over to the USADIP(United States Army Deserter Information Point) at Fort Knox. Since deserters are no longer assigned to a unit I hoped to just get kicked out or do jail time. Either would be better than going to Iraq. But to my surprise my unit didn't drop me from the rolls so I was never entered into the [Wanted Person File] of the FBI National Crime Information Center. So I went to New York and spent the next year traveling around doing anti-war activism.

I gave interviews to newspapers, magazines, and TV and radio stations. I stayed on the East Coast until Hurricane Katrina forced me back down south to look for my missing family in New Orleans. After about two years of desertion I was kicked out of the military. I think my decision to go public with my struggle helped to pressure the military to release me in August 2006. While I was on the run in Tennessee someone made a video that was sent to Amy Goodman and she invited me to be on her [Democracy Now!] TV show. So on March 15, 2005, just before the protest of the third year of the war, I was on a show called Three U.S. Soldiers Refusing to Fight Speak Out Against the Iraq War. She had me on again about six months later for a show called Missing in New Orleans: Voices of Those Seeking Loved Ones. The video that was made by MonkeyRay Productions while I was on the run in Tennessee is now on KLRU's Docubloggers which is a video blog on our local PBS station's website in Austin. I hope to be an example for others.

It's been a few years since I updated this but I guess one of the more recent important changes has been my expulsion from IVAW though I'm still a current member of VFP.

Via Julia Foree 2014 Chair, North Lamar Contact Team: Objective P.2 Improve the Access to and Safety of Brownie Playground I met last Friday morning with new park maintenance staff and manager Jeff. By the middle of July they have committed to: mow a wide swath on both sides of path that comes from Longspur to keep it passable. reroute path so it does not cross onto retention pond area (which is private land) but stays within park, crossing through the creekbed. remove the tall vegetation just to the south of the Brownie Dead end to provide a clear line of sight. remove fence sections located wholly within the park i.e. the fence just to the south of the playscape. (but not those on the boundaries, so not the one the path currently passes through.) repair the picnic table and play structure and replace the non-working water fountain with one which has a dog watering bowl. Please plan to attend the upcoming Contact Team meeting (July 12 at 1pm at the YMCA meeting room 1 on Rundberg) to discuss future improvements you would like to see to Brownie park and its extension. The Brownie Addition will likely change shape as IDEA builds their school. IDEA School, the new owner of the large tract of land to the south of Brownie Park is in discussions with us, Parks and Recreation, Public Works and Site Plan Review about the possibility of connecting Brownie Drive and Longspur Drive via road. This would remove existing parkland, which they would need to replace with some of their own land. The completion of this road would provide the neighborhood children who attend IDEA with a safe route to school remaining inside the neighborhood. The only other entrance to the school property is from I-35. Please let me know your thoughts. Julia Foree 2014 Chair, North Lamar Contact Team
