Mike Wendy 0 618 Article rating: No rating

After carefully considering the details of the CBRS PAL Auctions Procedures Public Notice, WISPA's VP of Policy, Louis Peraertz, notes CMA-level bidding will inhibit participation in the auction by small WISPs and others, meaning WISPA cannot support the Commission’s proposal as put forward.

Mike Wendy 1 993 Article rating: No rating

WISPA files Joint Comments with USTelecom and ITTA, as well as its own comments, on the FCC's Digital Opportunity Data Collection Report and Order and Second Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking.  In the Joint Filing, the commenters call for the implementation of the Broadband Serviceable Location Fabric to make location-based data collection hyper-accurate; and in the WISPA comments, we ask the FCC for “safe harbors” for fixed wireless broadband data reporting specifically geared to the technology and the spectrum band being used.

Mike Wendy 0 1916 Article rating: 5.0

Comments filed by WISPA reveal that the association favors much of the FCC's proposed $20 billion Rural Digital Opportunity Fund, including its proposal to allocate support based on the successful Connect America Fund (“CAF”) Phase II reverse auction process, as well as the adoption of certain performance requirements and enforcement mechanisms.  WISPA also offered some suggestions to make the program even better for WISPs and rural Americans.

Mike Wendy 0 874 Article rating: No rating

In a filing made at the FCC today, WISPA noted its support for the Commission’s re-evaluation of its MTE rules, and called for the agency to prohibit such practices as unreasonable revenue sharing, exclusive marketing and exclusive wiring agreements.  WISPA believes these and other discriminatory practices harm competition and far outweigh any purported consumer benefits envisaged by the outdated rules.

Washington, DC, July 19, 2019 – We are greatly pleased the FCC is inviting comment on the WISPA/Google/Microsoft C-band co-channel sharing study, which we believe confirms that non-harmful shared access by both satellite earth stations and fixed point-to-multipoint (P2MP) wireless services can safely occur in the C-band.
