FCC Call For Broadband Ideas In Rural Areas

U.S. Government Seeks Public's Input for Broadband
http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2342784,00.asp

“Specifically, the FCC is "asking for comment on how there can be better inter-agency coordination of broadband initiatives in order to develop a report on a rural broadband strategy," said acting FCC Chairman Michael Copps.”

I wrote an extensive article called “How To Bridge The Digital Divide" Those ideas still stand.

Additional ideas for increasing broadband access in both urban and rural areas include:

· Shift from a satellite based communication system to a fiber optic one. Our satellite based communication system is in danger by space junk a major, unresolved, problem.

"Satellite collision creates copious space junk 12 February 2009 by Rachel Courtland “Two space satellites smashed into each other on Tuesday in an unprecedented orbital accident. Government agencies are still assessing the aftermath, but early radar measurements have detected hundreds of pieces of debris that could pose a risk to other spacecraft. As first reported by CBS News, a defunct Russian Cosmos satellite and a communication satellite owned by the US firm Iridium collided some 790 kilometres above northern Siberia on Tuesday.”

To base our communication in such a chaotic environment is dangerous to say the least. Consider fiber optics and a redistribution of broadcast channel use. Consider ease of replacement in styling the system.

· At least get the children away from wi-fi. There is evidence of cancer from wi-fi exposure, especially in children.

To: Board of Supervisors, City and County of San Francisco
Regarding: Case No. 2007.0097E
San Francisco Citywide Wireless Broadband Internet Access Network
Analysis of Health and Environmental Effects of Proposed
San Francisco Earthlink Wi-Fi Network

12. SUMMARY

Laboratory studies of radio frequency radiation as well as epidemiological studies of people who live near cell phone antennas and/or use wireless technology indicate adverse biological effects.These effects include increase in cancers, DNA breaks, impaired reproduction, increased permeability of the blood-brain barrier, altered calcium flux, changes in enzyme activity,neurological disorders, altered brainwave activity, insomnia, decreased memory, inattention,slower reaction time, tinnitus, dizziness, skin disorders, headaches, chronic pain, chronic fatigue, respiratory problems and arrhythmia. A growing population is becoming sensitive to electromagnetic energy and some of these people are affected by radio frequency radiation and are unable to live near antennas.”

We need to look at the use of Wi-fi in schools and replace the information delivery system with something safe.

· Libraries should be 24/7 computer centers. Like midnight basketball, offer open web access to everyone qualified to take out a library book.

On the favorites on those computers should be information on where people can find food, housing, medical attention, and other empowerment services. Return Uncle Sam to the government so if someone is in trouble, they know where to go for help.

· For years here in Lake Havasu City, AZ we’ve encouraged our local cable company to allow access to on-demand libraries. The answer is still the technology is not here yet.

· Continue to encourage citizen chat on issues with the relevant government officials. In www.change.org style, all branches of government should have citizens chat room that are monitored and responded to. These jobs can be farmed out to home based businesses created from the currently unemployed. These chat rooms can serve as employment pools for when positions become available. Institute an ad campaign that stresses the need to let folks know that second hand information in the information age is the new slavery. Those who have to ask another for their daily data, like where to find the best buys on food, clothing, water and shelter, will find it’s old news by the time they get it, if they get it.


I hope the FCC factors in these thoughts, even though after helping more than 3,000 folks learn how to use a computer, they've ignored me for decades so I'm no longer disappointed. Just say the truth and leave the room.
