Welcome Back To The Wireless Messaging News


This issue is being published on Monday, July 9, 2108 due to unforeseen circumstances.

Apple today released iOS 11.4.1, the fifteenth update to the iOS 11 operating system that was first introduced in September 2017. iOS 11.4.1 comes more than a month after the release of iOS 11.4, a major update that introduced support for Messages in iCloud and AirPlay 2. [Source and more info.]

Another one here: While not a major update in any way, Apple is today releasing iOS 11.4.1, watchOS 4.3.2, and tvOS 11.4.1 to the public.

This doesn't mean that nothing is ever published here that mentions a US political party—it just means that the editorial policy of this newsletter is to remain neutral on all political issues. We don't take sides.

About Us

A new issue of the Wireless Messaging Newsletter is posted on the web each week. A notification goes out by e-mail to subscribers on most Fridays around noon central US time. The notification message has a link to the actual newsletter on the web. That way it doesn’t fill up your incoming e-mail account.

There is no charge for subscription and there are no membership restrictions. Readers are a very select group of wireless industry professionals, and include the senior managers of many of the world’s major Paging and Wireless Messaging companies. There is an even mix of operations managers, marketing people, and engineers — so I try to include items of interest to all three groups. It’s all about staying up-to-date with business trends and technology.

I regularly get readers’ comments, so this newsletter has become a community forum for the Paging, and Wireless Messaging communities. You are welcome to contribute your ideas and opinions. Unless otherwise requested, all correspondence addressed to me is subject to publication in the newsletter and on my web site. I am very careful to protect the anonymity of those who request it.

I spend the whole week searching the Internet for news that I think may be of interest to you — so you won’t have to. This newsletter is an aggregator — a service that aggregates news from other news sources. You can help our community by sharing any interesting news that you find.

Editorial Policy

Editorial Opinion pieces present only the opinions of the author. They do not necessarily reflect the views of any of advertisers or supporters. This newsletter is independent of any trade association. I don't intend to hurt anyone's feelings, but I do freely express my own opinions.


We need your help. This is probably the only weekly news source about paging and wireless messaging.

I would like to recommend Easy Solutions for Support of all Glenayre Paging Equipment. This Texas company is owned and operated by Vaughan Bowden. I have known Vaughan for over 35 years. Without going into a long list of his experience and qualifications, let me just say that he was the V.P. of Engineering at PageNet which was—at that time—the largest paging company in the world. So Vaughan knows Paging.

GTES is no longer offering support contracts. GTES was the original group from Vancouver that was setup to offer support to customers that wanted to continue with the legacy Glenayre support. Many U.S. customers chose not to use this service because of the price and the original requirement to upgrade to version 8.0 software (which required expensive hardware upgrades, etc.). Most contracts ended as of February 2018.

If you are at all concerned about future support of Glenayre products, especially the “king of the hill” the GL3000 paging control terminal, I encourage you to talk to Vaughan about a service contract and please tell him about my recommendation.

iPhone Exclusive: Apple's Massive, Cheap iPhone Confirmed

gordon kelly Gordon Kelly, CONTRIBUTOR
I write about technology's biggest companies
Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own.

Ghostek is back again. The popular case maker worked with me on a Galaxy S9 design exclusive last year and we teamed up to deliver new iPhone schematics last month. Now it has supplied me with renders which show-off the best and worst features of Apple AAPL +1.39%’s exciting ‘budget iPhone X’. . .

Once again tapping up its sources in Apple’s supply chain, Ghostek confirms Apple will indeed give fans the design they want, at the price they want, but not with all the features they want.

Apple's budget iPhone X

As the render shows, for approximately the same cost as an iPhone 8, Apple fans on a budget will be soon able to get the same bezel-less design as the iPhone X - complete with Face ID facial recognition. That’s the good news.

The bad news is buyers won’t get the same dual camera as the iPhone X or even the slightly downgraded version in the iPhone 8 Plus. Instead, they will be restricted to a single rear camera.

How confident is Ghostek in this information? It is being used to lock down the company’s update of its Atomic Slim cases.

Ghostek, Gordon Kelly
'Budget' iPhone X schematics confirm size and a single rear camera

Furthermore, we can add proportions to this render thanks to Apple’s finalised schematics. Coming in at 147.12 x 71.52 mm (5.79 x 2.81-inches), the budget iPhone X (which I predict to simply be called ‘iPhone’) is slightly larger than the original iPhone X and Apple will use this additional size to squeeze in a 6.1-inch display.

This display does have compromises since it will be LCD not OLED and lack 3D Touch, but Apple will compensate users by including fast wired charging for free.

Does the budget iPhone X get everything right? No, performance is already a concern, but with users expected to save approximately $300 for relatively minor concessions, I suspect it has the potential to outsell every iPhone before it. . .

PSA: If you’re experiencing excessive battery drain on iOS 11.4, it’s not just you

Chance Miller
Jul. 8th 2018 9:39 am PT

A growing number of iPhone users have taken to Apple’s support forums to complain of excessive battery drain since updating to iOS 11.4. Over 33 pages of complaints have piled up on Apple’s site, with users reporting varying levels of battery drain with iOS 11.4.

The primary issue seems to be standby battery life, with users reporting that their iPhone will drain an abnormal amount even when not being actively used. One user explains that this first started the day they updated to iOS 11.4:

My iPhone 6 was working perfectly fine until I updated to iOS 11.4 and ever since I did that my battery is draining rapidly even without me using it at all. I used to go a full day without charging it now it may last half a day.

I am just wondering if something got turned on with this new update that I have to turn off to save battery life. It is just weird I have not done anything other than update the iOS and now this happening.

Interestingly, one user says that the Settings app shows Personal Hotspot using nearly 50 percent of battery life, despite it never actually being turned on:

When I look at my battery performance, it shows that the personal hotspot on my phone is being used, though I have never turned it on. I have to keep charging my iPhone every 2-3 hours now.

At this point, it’s unclear what exactly is causing this issue, but it certainly appears to be becoming rather widespread with Apple yet to acknowledge it. Some users report that iOS 12 resolves their issues, but that of course won’t be released until this fall.

My iPhone 6s has the same issue after updated to iOS 11.4. I charged it up to 100%, rebooted it then let it stand by for 4 hours, the battery indicator dropped to 40%. It has been 3 days since I updated to iOS 11.4 and this issue happened every day.

Apple is also currently beta testing iOS 11.4.1, but it’s unclear at this point if that update resolves the issues.

In the Room Where It Happened

By Jim Fryer, Managing Editor, Inside Towers

The author in the parlor that Jefferson occupied on the corner of 7th and Market in Philadelphia have been recreated and contain period furnishings. Included are reproductions of Jefferson's swivel chair and the lap desk he used when he wrote the Declaration of Independence.

As an editor I have a soft spot in my heart every Independence Day for one Thomas Jefferson. The 33-year old delegate from Virginia was asked in the summer of 1776, to bang out a quick paper on, oh, Everything America Stands For based on pure conjecture. “And, yo, Tommy, we need it by Friday,” was likely the sum total of his instructions. So Jefferson secludes himself in the second-floor room of the two-room apartment pictured above (a ‘must see’ if you come for a visit) located in a building on the southwest corner of 7th and Market Streets in Philadelphia. He rolls up his sleeves . . . it was hot . . . fills up his inkwell, sends his manservant Bob (true!) down to the corner for a couple of cheese-steak hoagies with fried onions and goes to work. (That last part is still undocumented historically speaking, but his rough draft does show some unexplained grease stains.)

A copy of that rough draft shows how he agonized over every word making it not just a legally viable document but one of the great works of prose in the English language.

He had a couple of very sympathetic and light-handed editors looking over that first draft, two guys named Franklin and Adams who knew The Kid had writing chops but the Continental Congress would likely tear it to pieces. Franklin, 70 at the time, knew what his young friend was up against, saying, “I have made it a rule whenever in my power, to avoid becoming the draftsman of papers to be reviewed by a public body.” Old Ben sat next to young Tom while the Congress began taking its swings at the document on July 1, wisely cautioning him to let the process play itself out. Jefferson heeded the old man’s advice saying, “As to myself, I thought it a duty to be, on that occasion, a passive auditor of the opinions of others, more impartial judges than I could be, of its merits or demerits.” But he suffered in his silence while seeing his text, in his own words, “mangled.”

Adams, known for his bluntness among his colleagues, called the debate “an idle Mispence of Time.” Five decades later, Jefferson would give Adams credit for his leadership saying, “he supported the Declaration with zeal and ability, fighting fearlessly for every word of it.”

The most noted line that was left “on the cutting room floor” concerned slavery. “The CHRISTIAN (his emphasis) king of Great Britain, Jefferson wrote, was “determined to keep open a market where MEN should be bought & sold, he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or to restrain this execrable commerce: and that this assemblage of horrors might want no fact of distinguished die, he is now exciting those very people to rise in arms among us, and to purchase that liberty of which he has deprived them, & murdering the people upon whom he also obtruded them; thus paying off former crimes committed against the liberties of one people, with crimes which he urges them to commit against the lives of another.”

As Franklin and Adams no doubt anticipated, yet left in with hopes . . . no one would notice? . . . the southern states would have an objection or two to the clause. Jefferson ‘read the room’ and stayed silent while it was stricken from the document. He later said:

“The clause, too, reprobating the enslaving the inhabitants of Africa was struck out in complaisance to South Carolina and Georgia, who had never attempted to restrain the importation of slaves, and who, on the contrary, still wished to continue it. Our Northern brethren also, I believe, felt a little tender under these censures, for though their people had very few slaves themselves, yet they had been pretty considerable carriers of them to others.”

One can only wonder what the course of this nation would have been if the non-southern delegates, emboldened by a Virginian, no less, had followed their principles and kept that clause intact.

The debate may have raged on for another week or two had it not been so hot in Philly that summer of ‘76. But to cool things off, the windows were opened and the delegates were promptly attacked by horseflies from a nearby stable. Congress quickly decided to vote, adjourn, and retreat to local taverns . . . otherwise we’d be wishing each other a happy July 8th or 13th.

So, in the end, Jefferson had Franklin, Adams and horseflies to thank for preserving much of his efforts. And we thank him too.

Happy 4th!

Selected portions [sometimes more — sometimes less] of the BloostonLaw Telecom Update and/or the BloostonLaw Private Users Update — newsletters from the Law Offices of Blooston, Mordkofsky, Dickens, Duffy & Prendergast, LLP — are reproduced in this section of The Wireless Messaging News with kind permission from the firm. The firm's contact information is included at the end of this section of the newsletter.

Certain Parts of Form 481 Confidential by Default; Carriers May Still Request Confidentiality for Others

Starting this year, FCC Form 481 will only be filed with USAC. Information designated as confidential pursuant to FCC protective orders (i.e., rate-of-return carriers' detailed financial information) will reportedly be excluded from the data that is made public. Carriers should review this year’s filing to ensure that confidential information is adequately protected. If carriers believe applicable rules do not provide adequate protection, they may request that information and documentation filed be protected from public disclosure or inspection through the FCC’s standard confidentiality request rule. Carriers interested in requesting additional confidentiality should contact the firm for more information.

Opposition Deadline for Mobility Fund Phase II Application Set

On June 28, the FCC issued a Public Notice establishing the filing requirements for oppositions and replies regarding an application for review filed by Verizon Communications Inc. (“Verizon”) in the FCC’s Mobility Fund Phase II proceeding. Oppositions are due July 13, and replies are due July 23.

On June 21, 2018, Verizon filed an application for review of the FCC’s decision to use a 400-meter “buffer” radius to assess challenges to areas initially deemed ineligible for MF-II support. Verizon asks in its application for the FCC to modify this procedure by instead requiring the use of a 250-meter “buffer” radius.

According to the Public Notice, Verizon timely filed its application for review and individually served its application on some, but not all, of the parties that had commented in this proceeding; however the Commission’s rules requires applications for review to be individually served on all parties in a proceeding. Rather than dismiss the application, the FCC extended the deadline for filing oppositions to Verizon’s application for review to July 13, 2018, and the deadline for filing replies to those oppositions to July 23, 2018. This would provide notice to those parties who did not receive service in the normal way, and would also provide all parties with sufficient time to review the technical issues raised in Verizon’s application.

FCC Announces Form 396-C Filing Deadline, Supplementary Investigation Questions

On July 2, the FCC issued a Public Notice announcing that the deadline for multichannel video program distributors (MVPDs) must file with the Commission an FCC Form 396-C, Multi Channel Video Programming Distributor EEO Program Annual Report, for employment units with six or more full-time employees. Due to the annual September 30 deadline falling on a Sunday, Form 396-C is due on Monday, October 1 this year.

The Public Notice also identifies those MVPDs that must complete the Supplementary Investigation Sheet portion of the form. That list can be found here.

FCC Issues Second Mobility Fund Phase II Challenge Process Portal Update

On July 2, the FCC issued the second update about the Mobility Fund Phase II (MF-II) challenge process. As of June 30, 2018, a total of 80 entities have access to the Universal Service Administrator Company (USAC) MF-II Challenge Process Portal to participate in the MF-II challenge process. Of these entities, 37 are mobile service providers required to file Form 477 data; 13 are state government entities; 14 are local government entities; 12 are Tribal government entities; and four are other entities that have filed petitions requesting, and have each been granted, a waiver to participate. To date, challengers have submitted data including 399,390 speed tests.

On June 28, the FCC published in the Federal Register its Second Report and Order, in which it amends and clarifies the Commission's 700 MHz narrowband (769-775/799-805 MHz) interoperability and technical rules. Specifically, this Second Report and Order (1) amends and clarifies the rules to exempt 700 MHz low-power Vehicular Repeater Systems (VRS) from the 700 MHz trunking requirements; (2) amends the rules to ensure that 700 MHz public safety licensees receive information on the basis of vendor assertions that equipment is interoperable across vendors and complies with Project 25 (P25) standards; and (3) amends the rules to require that all narrowband mobile and portable 700 MHz public safety radios, as supplied to the ultimate user, must be capable of operating on all of the narrowband nationwide interoperability channels without addition of hardware, firmware, or software, and must be interoperable across vendors and operate in conformance with P25 standards.

Also effective July 30 are Rule Sections 2.1033(c) and 90.548(c), which Motorola Solutions, Inc. (Motorola) requested be postponed until complementary proposals that were the subject of a Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in the same proceeding were resolved. These rule sections deal with the reports that must accompany applications for equipment other than that operating under parts 15, 11 and 18, and interoperability certification requirements for certain equipment.

Senate Committee Approves Stark as FCC Commissioner

On June 27, the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation officially approved the nomination of Geoffrey Adam Starks, of Kansas, to be a Commissioner at the FCC. Mr. Starks most recently served as assistant bureau chief of the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau where he was responsible for enforcing the Commission’s rules, orders, licensing terms, and conditions. Prior to his tenure at the FCC, he worked for the U.S. Department of Justice in the Office of the Deputy Attorney General from 2013 to 2015 where he provided advice to the Deputy Attorney General on domestic and international law enforcement.

Law & Regulation

FCC Settles AT&T Mobility 911 Outage Investigation

On June 28, the FCC issued a Press Release announcing that it has settled its investigation into AT&T Mobility’s 911 outages of March and May 2017. As a condition of the settlement, the company must pay a $5.25 million fine, implement proactive system changes to reduce the likelihood and impact of future 911 outages, improve processes for notifying 911 call centers of any future outages, ensure reliable 911 call completion, and regularly file compliance reports with the FCC.

On March 8, 2017, and again on May 1, 2017, AT&T’s wireless phone customers across the country experienced 911 service outages on the company’s Voice over Long Term Evolution (VoLTE) network. Planned network changes implemented by AT&T on those days inadvertently interfered with the company’s routing of 911 calls. The March outage lasted approximately five hours, resulting in the failure of 911 calls from some 12,600 unique users. The May outage lasted approximately 47 minutes, resulting in 2,600 failed 911 calls. The FCC’s investigation also found that, during the March outage, the company failed to quickly, clearly, and fully notify all affected 911 call centers (formally known as Public Safety Answering Points (“PSAPs”)).

Comment Deadlines Established in Access Arbitrage Proceeding

On June 29, the FCC published in the Federal Register its NPRM proposing to adopt rules to curb the financial incentive to engage in access stimulation. Comments are due July 20, and reply comments are due August 3.

Specifically, the FCC proposes to give access-stimulating LECs two choices for receiving calls. The access stimulating LEC can choose either: To be financially responsible for the delivery of calls to its network, in which case intermediate access providers would charge the access-stimulating LEC for the delivery of calls; or to accept direct connections from long distance carriers seeking to terminate telephone calls to the LEC or from intermediate access providers of the long distance carriers' choosing, which would allow the long distance carriers to bypass intermediate access providers chosen by the access-stimulating LEC.

The NPRM also seeks comment on several alternatives, including requiring LECs engaged in access stimulation to immediately transition their terminating access charges to bill-and-keep, and on the effect the proposed rules will have on specific arbitrage schemes described in the record. Finally, it seeks comment on how to curb other arbitrage schemes.

Comment Deadline Established in Station License, Toll-Free (8YY) Proceedings

On July 2, the FCC issued two Public Notices announcing that the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking regarding the amendment of rules on posting station licenses and the Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking regarding toll-free (8YY) calling access charge reform appeared in the Federal Register, establishing comment deadlines for both dockets.

In the station license NPRM, the FCC proposes to eliminate or streamline provisions in Parts 0, 1, 5, 73, and 74 of the Commission’s rules which mandate posting and maintenance of broadcast licenses and authorization information in specific locations, including the physical cite of broadcast facilities. Those comments are due August 1, and reply comments are due August 16.

In the toll-free calling FNPRM, the FCC proposes to combat abuses of the current 8YY intercarrier compensation system by transitioning inter- and intra-state originating end office and tandem switching and transport charges for 8YY calls to bill-and-keep, capping database query rates on a nationwide basis, and prohibiting more than one database query charge per call. Those comments are due September 4, and reply comments are due October 1.

Chairman Pai Announces New Vice Chair, Member of Broadband Deployment Advisory Committee

On July 2, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai announced two appointments regarding the Broadband Deployment Advisory Committee (BDAC). First, Chairman Pai has appointed BDAC member David Young to serve as Vice Chair of the BDAC. In addition, the Chairman has appointed Danna Mackenzie, a member of the BDAC’s Removing State and Local Regulatory Barriers working group, to serve on the BDAC as a representative of the Minnesota Office of Broadband Development.

Mr. Young represents the National League of Cities on the BDAC and is the Fiber Infrastructure and Right of Way Manager for the City of Lincoln, Nebraska. Mr. Young replaces Kelleigh Cole, who left her position as the Director of the Utah Broadband Outreach Center and resigned from the BDAC last week to pursue professional opportunities in the private sector. Ms. Cole has served as Vice Chair of the BDAC since April 6, 2017.

Ms. Mackenzie will also serve as one of the Vice Chairs of the Harmonization working group (along with David Young). “I am pleased that Danna will be joining the full BDAC and will serve as one of the Vice Chairs of the Harmonization working group,” said Chairman Pai. “She is taking on this important responsibility at a critical time for the BDAC as the Harmonization working group resolves differences between the State Model Code and Municipal Model Code to ensure that the model codes are harmonized with each other and with the BDAC’s prior recommendations. I know Danna will do a great job.”


JULY 16: FCC FORM 481 (CARRIER ANNUAL REPORTING DATA COLLECTION FORM). All eligible telecommunications carriers (ETCs) must report the information required by Section 54.313, which includes outage, unfulfilled service request, and complaint data, broken out separately for voice and broadband services, information on the ETC’s holding company, operating companies, ETC affiliates and any branding in response to section 54.313(a)(8); its CAF-ICC certification, if applicable; its financial information, if a privately held rate-of-return carrier; and its satellite backhaul certification, if applicable. Form 481 must not only be filed with USAC, but also with the FCC and the relevant state commission and tribal authority, as appropriate. Although USAC treats the filing as confidential, filers must seek confidential treatment separately with the FCC and the relevant state commission and tribal authority if confidential treatment is desired.

JULY 31: FCC FORM 507, UNIVERSAL SERVICE QUARTERLY LINE COUNT UPDATE. Line count updates are required to recalculate a carrier's per line universal service support, and is filed with the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC). This information must be submitted on July 31 each year by all rate-of-return incumbent carriers, and on a quarterly basis if a competitive eligible telecommunications carrier (CETC) has initiated service in the rate-of-return incumbent carrier’s service area and reported line count data to USAC in the rate-of-return incumbent carrier’s service area, in order for the incumbent carrier to be eligible to receive Interstate Common Line Support (ICLS). This quarterly filing is due July 31 and covers lines served as of December 31 of the previous year. Incumbent carriers filing on a quarterly basis must also file on September 30 (for lines served as of March 31); December 30 (for lines served as of June 30, 2014), and March 31, for lines served as of September 30 of the previous year).

BloostonLaw contacts: Ben Dickens, Gerry Duffy, and Mary Sisak.

JULY 31: CARRIER IDENTIFICATION CODE (CIC) REPORTS. Carrier Identification Code (CIC) Reports must be filed by the last business day of July (this year, July 31). These reports are required of all carriers who have been assigned a CIC code by NANPA. Failure to file could result in an effort by NANPA to reclaim it, although according to the Guidelines this process is initiated with a letter from NANPA regarding the apparent non-use of the CIC code. The assignee can then respond with an explanation. (Guidelines Section 6.2). The CIC Reporting Requirement is included in the CIC Assignment Guidelines, produced by ATIS. According to section 1.4 of that document: At the direction of the NANPA, the access providers and the entities who are assigned CICs will be requested to provide access and usage information to the NANPA, on a semi-annual basis to ensure effective management of the CIC resource. (Holders of codes may respond to the request at their own election). Access provider and entity reports shall be submitted to NANPA no later than January 31 for the period ending December 31, and no later than July 31 for the period ending June 30. It is also referenced in the NANPA Technical Requirements Document, which states at 7.18.6: CIC holders shall provide a usage report to the NANPA per the industry CIC guidelines … The NAS shall be capable of accepting CIC usage reports per guideline requirements on January 31 for the period ending December 31 and no later than July 31 for the period ending June 30. These reports may also be mailed and accepted by the NANPA in paper form. Finally, according to the NANPA website, if no local exchange carrier reports access or usage for a given CIC, NANPA is obliged to reclaim it. The semi-annual utilization and access reporting mechanism is described at length in the guidelines.

AUGUST 1: FCC FORM 499-Q, TELECOMMUNICATIONS REPORTING WORKSHEET. All telecommunications common carriers that expect to contribute more than $10,000 to federal Universal Service Fund (USF) support mechanisms must file this quarterly form. The FCC has modified this form in light of its recent decision to establish interim measures for USF contribution assessments. The form contains revenue information from the prior quarter plus projections for the next quarter. Form 499-Q relates only to USF contributions. It does not relate to the cost recovery mechanisms for the Telecommunications Relay Service (TRS) Fund, the North American Numbering Plan Administration (NANPA), and the shared costs of local number portability (LNP), which are covered in the annual form (Form 499-A) that was due April 1.

BloostonLaw contacts: Ben Dickens and Gerry Duffy.

AUGUST 1: FCC FORM 502, NUMBER UTILIZATION AND FORECAST REPORT: Any wireless or wireline carrier (including paging companies) that have received number blocks—including 100, 1,000, or 10,000 number blocks—from the North American Numbering Plan Administrator (NANPA), a Pooling Administrator, or from another carrier, must file Form 502 by August 1. Carriers porting numbers for the purpose of transferring an established customer’s service to another service provider must also report, but the carrier receiving numbers through porting does not. Resold services should also be treated like ported numbers, meaning the carrier transferring the resold service to another carrier is required to report those numbers but the carrier receiving such numbers should not report them. Reporting carriers file utilization and forecast reports semiannually on or before February 1 for the preceding six-month reporting period ending December 31, and on or before August 1 for the preceding six-month reporting period ending June 30.

SEPTEMBER 2: FCC FORM 477, LOCAL COMPETITION AND BROADBAND REPORTING FORM. Normally due September 1, this year’s filing falls on a federal holiday, pushing the deadline back to the next business day. Three types of entities must file this form.

  1. Facilities-based Providers of Broadband Connections to End User Locations: Entities that are facilities-based providers of broadband connections — which are wired “lines” or wireless “channels” that enable the end user to receive information from and/or send information to the Internet at information transfer rates exceeding 200 kbps in at least one direction — must complete and file the applicable portions of this form for each state in which the entity provides one or more such connections to end user locations. For the purposes of Form 477, an entity is a “facilities-based” provider of broadband connections to end user locations if it owns the portion of the physical facility that terminates at the end user location, if it obtains unbundled network elements (UNEs), special access lines, or other leased facilities that terminate at the end user location and provisions/equips them as broadband, or if it provisions/equips a broadband wireless channel to the end user location over licensed or unlicensed spectrum. Such entities include incumbent and competitive local exchange carriers (LECs), cable system operators, fixed wireless service providers (including “wireless ISPs”), terrestrial and satellite mobile wireless service providers, MMDS providers, electric utilities, municipalities, and other entities. (Such entities do not include equipment suppliers unless the equipment supplier uses the equipment to provision a broadband connection that it offers to the public for sale. Such entities also do not include providers of fixed wireless services (e.g., “Wi-Fi” and other wireless Ethernet, or wireless local area network, applications) that only enable local distribution and sharing of a premises broadband facility.)
  2. Providers of Wired or Fixed Wireless Local Telephone Services: Incumbent and competitive LECs must complete and file the applicable portions of the form for each state in which they provide local exchange service to one or more end user customers (which may include “dial-up” ISPs).
  3. Providers of Interconnected Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) Service: Interconnected VoIP service is a service that enables real-time, two-way voice communications; requires a broadband connection from the user’s location; requires Internet-protocol compatible customer premises equipment; and permits users generally to receive calls that originate on the public switched telephone network and to terminate calls to the public switched telephone network. Interconnected VoIP providers must complete and file the applicable portions of the form for each state in which they provide interconnected VoIP service to one or more subscribers, with the state determined for reporting purposes by the location of the subscriber’s broadband connection or the subscriber’s “Registered Location” as of the data-collection date. “Registered Location” is the most recent information obtained by an interconnected VoIP service provider that identifies the physical location of an end user.
  4. Providers of Mobile Telephony Services: Facilities-based providers of mobile telephony services must complete and file the applicable portions of this form for each state in which they serve one or more mobile telephony subscribers. A mobile telephony service is a real-time, two-way switched voice service that is interconnected with the public switched network using an in-network switching facility that enables the provider to reuse frequencies and accomplish seamless hand off of subscriber calls. A mobile telephony service provider is considered “facilities-based” if it serves a subscriber using spectrum for which the entity holds a license that it manages, or for which it has obtained the right to use via lease or other arrangement with a Band Manager.

OCTOBER 1: FCC FORM 396-C, MVPD EEO PROGRAM REPORTING FORM. Each year on September 30, multi-channel video program distributors (“MVPDs”) must file with the Commission an FCC Form 396-C, Multi- Channel Video Programming Distributor EEO Program Annual Report, for employment units with six or more full-time employees. Because September 30 falls on a Sunday this year, the filing will be due the following business day on October 1.

Users must access the FCC’s electronic filing system via the Internet in order to submit the form; it will not be accepted if filed on paper unless accompanied by an appropriate request for waiver of the electronic filing requirement. Certain MVPDs also will be required to complete portions of the Supplemental Investigation Sheet (“SIS”) located at the end of the Form. These MVPDs are specifically identified in a Public Notice each year by the FCC.

“Cell Tower in a Box” Could Connect The Unconnected

Community LTE Project Photo

Spencer Sevilla

A cell-tower network in a box may be an affordable method for remote areas to obtain Internet access.

GeekWire reports that Spencer Sevilla, a postdoctoral researcher in the University of Washington’s School of Computer Science and Engineering and his team, are developing IslandCell, a cell-tower network in a box that’s the size of a backpack, weighs approximately 20 pounds and is built with commercial grade cell tower hardware. Sevilla received a $25,000 grant from Amazon Catalyst in 2017 for what he characterizes as affordable, flexible technology.

“Internet access is so useful that it becomes a fundamental need,” said Sevilla.

The idea is that rural communities in the U.S. and abroad can pool their resources to buy the LTE device, which allows them to set up their own mini cellular network reaching up to six miles. The hardware connects to the Internet through a satellite network or a fiber connection, if available, but can provide basic locally-hosted services even without an Internet connection, reports GeekWire.

“We are empowering people to build these tools for themselves,” Sevilla said. “It’s a community ownership model.”

Sevilla plans to travel to Indonesia this month to test the technology in the field. He’s still working out details, including step-by-step instructions to help people set up the equipment; He wants deployment to be as easy as installing WiFi systems, and he’s happy to be tackling an important issue for billions of people, reports GeekWire. “We’re here to make social change,” Sevilla said.

The Secret to Happiness Is Helping Others

There is a Chinese saying that goes: “If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.” For centuries, the greatest thinkers have suggested the same thing: Happiness is found in helping others.
