More Machinations from Dish

Dish Network is petitioning the FCC for waiver of certain technical rules governing a terrestrial deployment on its 20 MHz of AWS-4 spectrum as well as a one-year extension for that deployment.

In a document filed yesterday, Dish said the waiver and extra time will give it the opportunity to determine if it will use its spectrum (2000-2020 MHz) for downlink or for uplink. Dish promised to take no longer than 30 months to make that distinction.

In return for the FCC granting the waiver and time extension, Dish has promised to bid in the upcoming H Block auction for the paired 1915-1920 MHz and 1995-2000 MHz bands. Either directly or indirectly through an affiliated entity, Dish promised to bid “at least a net clearing price equal to any aggregate nationwide reserve price established by the Commission in the upcoming H Block auction (not to exceed the equivalent of $0.50 per MHz/POP).”

I would love for the FCC to slap them around a bit.

I feel really bad saying this, but I can't tell if you're saying you now work for the FCC, or if this is some kind of pop culture reference I don't know about.

Whats the current deployment requirement? They need 1 extra year but 30 months to study their plan?

I love that CharChar thinks that guaranteeing a bid in the H block is a magical carrot. "C'mon, give me what I want and I promise to tie up even more spectral resources with my unknown network setup and impossible deplyment schedule (pay no attention to my threats to sell the company)"

I think they need to have 30% coverage within 3 years and 70% after 5.

He was actually saying "lock jaw" in a Japanese-esque, Jackie Chan-voice.

Oh, I see.

 

In other news, Asian racism really bothers me, but it's seen as normal, even passe, in many English speaking countries. Such unthinking acceptance is the core of it.

Actually, there wasn't anything remotely close to racist meant by my statement, but feel free to twist it that way if you like.

lol? no need to get offended, it was more a general statement than anything directed at you. My comment was a reference to the fact that "asians speak bad engrish" or "funny asian accent" are common jokes with racist undertones.

You should see the Indian racism.

India is in Asia ;) but don't tell the Americans that, they'll tell you "no, I'm talking real Asians!" (actual quote)

Lol, actually it annoys me when I'm lumped into the Asian category. We're pretty much our own continent over there.

I completely understand. I was just pointing out something typical of Americans in particular, a lack of understanding of basic geography. These "Americans" will look at you funny if you mention "The Americas", or will tell you that Chechnya and the Czech Republic are the same thing.

Lol, of course.

 

Then again, I am American, and from New Jersey, which, in my mind is the center of the world ;)

What's the thoughts on the suits against Charlie? Looks like they may have him backed in a corner...

He's fought people so long and so consistently in the legal arena that it is an inevitability that the legal avenues he takes would backfire on him at some point.

    • Did my drive from PHX to SEA & got to experience the terribleness that is the totem lake area. Impressive, speed test didn't complete either time.
    • Weird that they'd go back to the Edge+. Would think they'd let folks use the S22 just like with Genesis. In other news, St. Louis has 10x10 n71 + n66 SDL live. A bit more info here:  
    • Wonder what other spectrum the auto industry can use, how much of the 5.9GHz was being used, and if 30MHz will be enough 20 or 30 years from now. The auto industry has had it for 20 years sure, but technology can move really slow.  It isn't good.  It isn't ready for real world applications. The hardware is too slow to be able to process enough reliable data. It is too expensive.  Etc. I would argue that we are just getting to the point where features that I would assume could use 5.9GHz are just now hitting mass market as the code is better, hardware is not only significantly faster but also cheaper. The baseline trim models still lack a lot of safety features but the next trim up usually comes with a bunch of goodies I'd assume could make use of 5.9GHz. Just imagine where we were in 2005, 2010, 2015.  Mostly just assumptions without enough knowledge of the spectrum use, so a hint of skepticism. With the what, 1.2GHz that opened up in the 6GHz range, getting 45MHz out of 5.9GHz is very meh.
    • Cool find! Been there since 2018 according to Cellmapper. The only other time I've seen them leave up a temp site like this for a long period of time was when a nearby site is temporarily inoperable like the one in Red Hook Houses. That doesn't seem to be the case here and it's pretty much a GMO site at this point. My best guess is that T-Mobile wanted to put a site there to fill in coverage but because it's on LGA's grounds getting the actual permission to do so is extremely complex so they worked out a deal with the Port Authority to put up a COW in the meantime.  
    • Would this be a T-Mobile COW outside LGA Terminal A? eNB 49106 seems to line up to its position, plus the arm for the trailer to hook onto a truck says T-Mobile. Here is the NYC streetcar view the image was pulled from.     For all the years I have been monitoring the DAS, I have never gotten -55 or better, even after passing by every antenna in a station that is deep enough to have 0 outside macros reaching in. The SNR is still 20+, so its probably designed that way on purpose.
