U.S. Stimulus Package may benefit rural telcos, but licensed spectrum still the key issue for WiMAX deployment

The U.S. stimulus package will award $7.2 billion for broadband, much of that ear marked for small rural telephone companies and WISPs.

We understand that a bit more than a third of the money will be administered through the Rural Utilities Service (RUS), which has until Sept. 30 of this year to make awards. While rural telcos are not the only companies eligible to receive RUS money, they may be best positioned to receive it because many of them are already familiar with the… Continue

City's and broadband

Do city's know they don't need money to deploy wireless broadband. Quick math what are your data cost per mo. now what are your wired phones per mo. Total those numbers. If it's a huge city, they may be spending 200.000 a mo. If you take there existing infrastructure, public safety towers, there's a savings.I would be willing to bet I could find a way to cut that number in half to 100.000 a month.
