Broadband Deployment Comments to the FCC

From the Illinois Broadband Council.... a listing of comments from (most) of the usual suspects.

For those of us without broadband.... these are pdfs. I shall not comment upon the wisdom of some of these submissions amounting to 9 megabytes or so.

I find the CCIA comments quite worthwhile regarding
  • the evolutionary view of "what's broadband",
  • inclusion of wireless broadband in demographics,
  • consideration of market competitiveness and
  • improving the granularity of service coverage statistics (viz, zip plus four)

Broadband Deployment (From The Illinois Broadband Council)

Comments, GN Docket No. 07-45

" 5/16/2007 - The following comments have been filed in response to the Commission's April 16, 2007 Notice of Inquiry concerning the deployment of advanced telecommunications capability to all Americans in a reasonable and timely fashion. NTCA believes the FCC should continue to develop rural broadband incentive programs targeted towards unserved and underserved areas, provide rural carriers with a sense of regulatory certainty, and ensure that all providers who use rural ILEC networks are required to pay their fair share of network costs. AT&T believes the Commission should maintain a stable deregulatory environment by keeping the status quo."
