A Bad Day In the Making For Mobilitie

I’m fairly sure that today will not be good for fine folks at Mobilitie in Newport Beach.

I’ve had a chance to preview various local government filings in the FCC wireless/wireline broadband proceedings. Those reply comments will be uploaded later today to the FCC’s ECFS. Mobilitie will likely raise as a ‘star’ in a number . . . → Read More: A Bad Day In the Making For Mobilitie

SprintCasTrum?

Published reports late today have Sprint putting aside its merger talks with T-Mobile to focus on a potentially MUCH MORE IMPORTANT deal–one with Charter and Comcast (or is it Comcast and Charter). I’ve predicted a deal like this for years.

Why is a Sprint-MSOs deal more important than a deal with T-Mobile?

Presuming the existence of the email at the source of Lydia’s article, it documents the end of an experiment to bypass some government permitting requirements to . . . → Read More: Where there’s smoke (at Sprint and Mobilitie)…

Did Sprint and Mobilitie Conspire to Bypass Zoning Laws?

Lydia Beyoud of Event-Driven.com posted an article this afternoon that alleges that Sprint and Mobilitie planned and tested a program to bypass some local zoning requirements, 1) to essentially put up some cell sites without first obtaining all required government permits, and 2) without requiring some other site prerequisites such as power and backhaul solutions.
