We'll be reaching out to our customers to have them verify the information in our new billing system is correct. You can reach the portal from our web site at this link: http://ow.ly/xRDe30jNrU8

We changed to a new billing system this week. Let us know if you have any issues with it.

We are looking for apartments, condos, etc. in the Aurora and Naperville areas. With the repeal of Net Neutrality, we've heard from some people fearing their existing Internet company will start messing with their traffic. We won't, so we'd like to step in before they do.

We are having some issues with thermal inversions today. In short, different layers of air have formed with different temperatures\humidities and are bending our signals. http://ow.ly/eqmC30hhltz

@JRosenworcel @mikeofcc @AjitPaiFCC @MClyburnFCC @BrendanCarrFCC @WhiteHouse @realDonaldTrump @RepKinzinger @SenatorDurbin @SenDuckworth These are the kinds of areas left under-served if the @FCC gives #CBRS to the big cellular companies.

Two years ago FCC rules allowed us the opportunity to bid on licensed spectrum based on census tracts. We would bid on them against everyone else to let us provide a higher quality of service. For similar coverage, we'd need to purchase licenses in 142 tracts covering 911k people (way more than the 429k when counting by census blocks, which is already way more than our target market). Under a current FCC process, we'd be looking at bidding in 3 PEAs comprising 9.8M people for anything at all resembling our coverage. That's 20x the amount of people, of which we'd have no intention to serve the vast majority of them. Does that make sense to you?

Rick has made several posts like this. We'll share more of them.

If you left your common sense at the door, when you left your house this morning, that's ok. Just make sure you have common sense when you vote on the #CBRS PAL License rules.

Long story short, the Federal Communications Commission partially reclaimed some frequencies from federal use to be shared amongst federal and commercial uses. Feds get priority, but then there was to be a bunch of channels available for auction (in addition to some reserved for general, non-auction use). The government left many implementation details to industry to solve. Industry has been hammering those out with implementation expected in the next six months.
This would expand the work that independent fixed wireless ISPs have been doing in neighboring frequencies for ten years. This would enable those ISPs to be able to offer a better quality of service and improved speeds to their customers.
This would be the first auction where entities don't have to spend billions of dollars to get licensed protections. This is because instead of there being only a few hundred areas to license, there are approximately 75,000 areas. This means that each area is much smaller and much more able to be afforded by independent operators. This means that with more participants, the Treasury gets more revenue due to competition. The rural areas around a town are not left to waste. Those areas will get used of independent operators can get those licenses.
Why the big post? The cellular companies have gotten the FCC to open discussion on if they should throw out the model already approved two years ago just on the cusp of implementation to favor large blocks that favor those with billions.
When the comment period officially opens, we'll be inviting your participation.
