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.

WhatsApp launches native Windows app, and new macOS version is on the way

Filipe Espósito — Aug. 16th 2022 4:52 pm PT @filipeesposito

WhatsApp on Tuesday launched a completely new app for Windows users. This time, instead of using the old Electron technology (which is web-based), the app has been completely rebuilt using native Windows technologies, which should result in better performance overall.

The new WhatsApp for Windows was previously available as a beta app, and now it is finally available for all users. As detailed by WhatsApp in a blog post (via The Verge), the new app comes to replace the old WhatsApp Desktop with a new, native experience. Since it now runs natively, the app has become more reliable and faster.

In addition, the native WhatsApp app has some other advantages compared to its predecessor. For example, users can now send and receive messages even when their phone is offline. The interface has also been redesigned to look cleaner and more consistent with the Windows interface.

Mac users will also get new WhatsApp app

In the near future, WhatsApp’s macOS app should also get a similar update. Last month, WhatsApp released the first public beta of its new Mac app built on Catalyst technology – which lets developers easily bring iOS apps to macOS. Instead of using web technologies, the new app is heavily based on WhatsApp for iOS using the system’s native APIs.

As a result, the new macOS app also runs faster and uses fewer resources, which helps when it comes to saving battery power. The new WhatsApp beta app for macOS also works when the phone is offline, just like WhatsApp for Windows.

Windows users can now download the new WhatsApp app for Windows on the Microsoft Store. It requires a computer running Windows 10 or later. As for the new macOS version, users interested in getting it before the official release must sign up for the beta app on TestFlight.

WhatsApp also has plans to release an iPad version (and now this is totally possible with the Catalyst version), but at this point, the beta app for iPadOS has yet to be released.

Fiber optic technology powers the Internet, and it’s a big business


Magdalena Petrova

Fiber-based networks make up the majority of the Internet’s backbone. Fiber-optic subsea cables spanning thousands of miles connect continents together, exchanging data at nearly the speed of light. Meanwhile, the massive data centers that host all of our cloud-based applications also rely on fiber connections. Increasingly, these fiber connections are making their way directly into peoples’ homes, providing them with fast, reliable Internet. But, only 43% of U.S. households have access to a fiber Internet connection.

“In some instances, particularly in rural areas and very challenging geographies, it can be prohibitively expensive to to deploy fiber and it can be very expensive for households to pay for it,” says Julija Jurkevic, a senior research analyst at S&P Global Market Intelligence.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that passed in November 2021 promises to bridge this digital divide, with $65 billion dedicated to expanding access to broadband Internet to all Americans. Such government support, along with a number of other factors, have caused a spike in the demand for fiber products.

To understand the technology behind fiber-optic Internet and how the market for fiber products is changing, CNBC visited Corning’s optical fiber and cable manufacturing facilities in North Carolina. Most famous as the maker of Gorilla Glass for iPhones, Corning is also the world’s largest producer of optical fiber by manufacturing capacity and market share, as well as the largest manufacturer of fiber cable in North America. In Q2 2022, Corning disclosed that the optical communications business was its largest segment by revenue, reaching sales of $1.3 billion.

Service Contracts

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.

Apple Patches New macOS, iOS Zero-Days

By Ryan Naraine on August 17, 2022

Apple on Wednesday rolled out emergency patches for a pair of already exploited zero-day vulnerabilities in its flagship macOS and iOS platforms.

Apple confirmed in-the-wild exploitation of the vulnerabilities in separate advisories warning about code execution flaws in fully patched iPhone, iPad and macOS devices.

Barebones details from Apple’s advisories:

CVE-2022-32894 (kernel) — An application may be able to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges. An out-of-bounds write issue was addressed with improved bounds checking. Apple is aware of a report that this issue may have been actively exploited.

CVE-2022-32893 (WebKit) — Processing maliciously crafted web content may lead to arbitrary code execution. An out-of-bounds write issue was addressed with improved bounds checking. Apple is aware of a report that this issue may have been actively exploited.

The patches are being pushed to Apple’s auto-update mechanism (macOS Monterey 12.5.1, iOS 15.6.1 and iPadOS 15.6.1).

Apple did not release any details on the live exploitation or any indicators of compromise to help defenders look for signs of infections.

Apple’s emergency patch comes on the same day Google shipped a major Chrome browser update to cover a high-severity bug that has already been exploited as zero-day. Google did not release any information about the attacks, but noted that researchers of the company’s Threat Analysis Group reported the vulnerability on July 19.

This is the fifth Chrome zero-day patched by the Internet giant in 2022. Exploitation of the fourth zero-day, which came to light in early July, has been linked to Israeli spyware company Candiru and used in targeted attacks aimed at entities in the Middle East.

So far this year, zero-day trackers have documented 27 in-the-wild attacks against widely deployed desktop and mobile software products. The bulk of the zero-day attacks take aim at defective code from Apple, Google and Microsoft.

8-year-old girl chats with ISS astronaut using ham radio

When Isabella Payne heads back to elementary school in September, she's going to have the best "what I did on my vacation" story to tell.

In a tale of "right place, right time," the 8-year-old girl from Kent in southeast England spoke with American astronaut Kjell Lindgren aboard the International Space Station (ISS) using her dad's ham radio.

On Aug. 2, Isabella had just dropped off to sleep when her dad woke her up, dragged her out to the radio and thrust a microphone in her face.

"I was like 'Why are you doing this to me? I need my beauty sleep,'" Isabella told CNN on Wednesday.

From her dad's lap, she told Lindgren her name and age. "His voice instantly changed from normal to joyful," she said. "You could hear his smile."

"I was elated when I heard his voice," she added. "I thought it was a dream."

After their conversation, Lindgren told followers on Twitter about it, saying his chat with Isabella may be his "favorite contact so far."

Isabella's dad, Matthew Payne, 42, said he has held an amateur radio license for 22 years. He told CNN that conversations with astronauts are kept short, with a brief mention of your call sign — every person with a license is allocated one by official agencies — to tell them who you are, your name, and a quick thank you and goodbye.

"They're only in the sky above us for 10 to 15 minutes and we want as many people as possible down here to have that kind of experience," Payne explained.

He said the ISS has an amateur radio station aboard that is used by astronauts to make contact with schools while in orbit. Occasionally, during their downtime, they also "call out" to any amateur radio operators on Earth.

"I heard through the communities that I'm part of that he (Lindgren) was using the radio, so we listened for a couple of weeks ... and one evening I heard him call," Payne recounted.

Both father and daughter are space and radio fans, Payne said, adding that Isabella had been sitting on his knee since she was a baby, watching "all the launches, all the space station events, all the space walks" together.

A "cannibal" solar ejection heading straight for Earth could bring northern lights as far south as Illinois and trigger power voltage issues


The sun could be sending a storm to Earth over the next few days. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, our fiery star spit out a series of bursts on Sunday that are headed in the direction of our planet and could trigger a strong geomagnetic storm.

One of those bursts, called a coronal mass ejection, or CME, is expected to collide and consume another, creating what's called a cannibal CME event. According to The Weather Channel, these events can spark strong geomagnetic storms — and in this case, it's headed in our direction.

This 2004 image from NASA's Solar and Heliospheric Observatory shows a solar flare, at right, erupting from giant sunspot 649, hurling a coronal mass ejection (CME) into space. NASA SOHO/AFP VIA GETTY IMAGES

NOAA expects that the ejections will hit on Thursday, but before they do, the agency said that Earth will also be blasted on Wednesday with relatively fast solar winds, known as a recurrent coronal hole high speed stream. The solar winds alone could trigger a minor geomagnetic storm on Wednesday, but those conditions are expected to escalate to strong conditions, known as G3, once the solar bursts make their appearance.

NOAA said at least four of the CMEs have the potential to directly affect Earth.

Geomagnetic storms are ranked on a scale of G1 to G5, with G5 being the most extreme. In such an instance, there would be widespread voltage control issues and some power grids could experience "complete collapse or blackouts," according to NOAA.

A G3 storm, like the one anticipated, could require that some power voltage systems need to be corrected and it could also trigger some false alarms on power protection devices.

Such a storm could also create a beautiful side effect — visible northern lights outside of their usual realm.

NOAA previously said the northern lights, also known as the aurora borealis, may be seen as far south as Illinois and Oregon if the G3 hits.

When a CME hit Earth on Wednesday, it sparked a G2 geomagnetic storm and a sighting of aurora in Herzogswalde, Germany, according to, which tracks the latest data coming from NOAA. Herzogswalde is at 51ºN latitude, roughly in line with central Quebec and Ontario in Canada. And as noted, the lights were visible in that city through "clouds, haze and urban lights."

On Thursday morning, NOAA said that the area of impact is mostly areas 50ºN and later, adding that the aurora may be visible at high latitudes such as in Canada and Alaska.

Also on Wednesday, NASA astronaut Bob Hines, who is a pilot on the SpaceX Crew-4 mission that launched in April, shared his own photos of the northern lights as seen from space. He pointed to the recent solar activity for creating the splendor.

Where the lights will be visible and how intense they will be is best estimated by NOAA about 30 to 90 minutes beforehand. Radar shows that Thursday morning at around 2:45 a.m. ET, the probability of aurora being seen from North Dakota, Minnesota and most of Canada increased dramatically.

A short-term forecast for the lights can be found here.

The aurora borealis could be seen on the northern horizon in the night sky over Wolf Lake in the Cloquet State Forest in Minnesota in the early morning hours of Sept. 28, 2019.

DISH Seeks FCC OK for High-Power CBRS Trials

By Leslie Stimson, Inside Towers Washington Bureau Chief.

DISH Wireless wants to conduct Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) field tests to evaluate the effects of high-power operations in the band. It asked the FCC for a waiver to conduct the 3.5 GHz trials starting November 1 and ending February 28 of next year, in Boulder, CO.

If approved, DISH proposes to evaluate “coverage, throughput and spectral efficiency improvement” with high-power CBRS operations. It’s also curious to see the impact on current General Authorized Access and Priority Access License operations “if the in-band emission requirement of -25 dBm/MHz is waived to align with adjacent C-band,” or 3.7 GHz, the company says in its application.

BloostonLaw Newsletter

Selected portions [sometimes more — sometimes less — sometimes the whole updates] 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's partners. The firm's contact information is included at the end of this section of the newsletter.

  BloostonLaw Telecom Update Vol. 25, No. 31 August 15, 2022  

Reminder: RDOF Letter of Credit Must Be Amended Annually

RDOF Letter of Credit (LOC) requirements increase over the first three years of the program, from 12 months of total support upon authorization to 18 months of total support in year two; to two years of total support in year three; and to three years of total support in year four; until USAC verifies that the carrier has met the first mandatory interim deployment milestone, for 40 percent deployment, which applies at the end of year three.

Depending on when support was initially authorized, winning bidders will need to increase their LOCs in order to maintain compliance in accordance with these requirements. Winning bidders with questions about LOC requirements may contact the firm for more information.

FCC Rejects LTD Broadband and Starlink RDOF Applications

On August 10, the FCC issued a Press Release announcing that it is rejecting the long-form applications of LTD Broadband and Starlink to receive support through the RDOF program. Specifically, the FCC found that, “based on the totality of the long-form applications, the expansive service areas reflected in their winning bids, and their inadequate responses to the Bureau’s follow-up questions, LTD and Starlink are not reasonably capable of complying with the Commission’s requirements.”

LTD Broadband won $1,320,920,718.60. LTD proposed to deploy gigabit fiber to 475,616 estimated locations in 11 states. Although LTD was a relatively small fixed wireless provider before the auction, it was the largest winning bidder in the auction. Subsequently, it failed to timely receive eligible telecommunications carrier status in seven states, rendering it ineligible in those states for support. Ultimately, the FCC review concluded that LTD was not reasonably capable of deploying a network of the scope, scale, and size required by LTD’s extensive winning bids.

Starlink, the satellite system run by Elon Musk’s SpaceX, won $885,509,638.40. Starlink proposed to rely upon a nascent LEO satellite technology to provide 100/20 Mbps low latency service to 642,925 estimated locations in 35 states. The FCC observed that Ookla data reported as of July 31, 2022 indicated that Starlink’s speeds have been declining from the last quarter of 2021 to the second quarter of 2022, including upload speeds that are falling well below 20 Mbps.

“After careful legal, technical, and policy review, we are rejecting these applications. Consumers deserve reliable and affordable high-speed broadband,” said Chairwoman Rosenworcel. “We must put scarce universal service dollars to their best possible use as we move into a digital future that demands ever more powerful and faster networks. We cannot afford to subsidize ventures that are not delivering the promised speeds or are not likely to meet program requirements.”

Commissioner Carr expressed some disappointment with the decision. “I am surprised to find out via a press release—while I am on a work trip to remote parts of Alaska—that the FCC has made this significant decision. I will have more to say because we should be making it easier for unserved communities to get service, not rejecting a proven satellite technology that is delivering robust, high-speed service today. To be clear, this is a decision that tells families in states across the country that they should just keep waiting on the wrong side of the digital divide even though we have the technology to improve their lives now.”

CAF II Eligible Locations Adjustment Process Filing Window Opens August 23; Winners Can Reply to Challengers’ Objections

On August 10, the FCC issued a Public Notice announcing the opening of a 30-day reply period for the Eligible Locations Adjustment Process (ELAP), beginning August 23 and ending September 22. During this reply period, Connect America Fund (CAF) Phase II auction support recipients participating in the ELAP (Participants) whose ELAP information has been challenged by a registered stakeholder may access and review all certified information submitted by that stakeholder, and submit additional information opposing the challenge. If a Participant chooses to submit a reply, it must submit a location data file that indicates the specific challenged locations that the Participant will address in its reply. It must also submit either a methodology file or one or more evidence files that addresses the eligibility of the referenced location(s) (or both).

The ELAP is a voluntary challenge process designed to facilitate post-auction review and potential adjustment of the defined CAF II Auction deployment obligations (and associated support) on a state-by-state basis if the total number of locations funded by the program exceeds the number of actual locations. Twenty-six (26) different carriers in twenty-three (23) states (a total of thirty-six (36) different Participant/state combinations) participated in ELAP, seeking reductions of their defined deployment obligations ranging from a 1% to 60% reduction. By filing challenges to the accuracy and completeness of the location information submitted by one or more of these Participants, stakeholders help mitigate the risk that adjustments to these Participants’ deployment obligations will result in previously funded, qualifying locations remaining unserved.

FCC Urges EAS Participants to Take Immediate Steps to Secure Emergency Alert Equipment

The FCC is advising communications providers that participate in the Emergency Alert System (EAS) to take steps to secure their EAS equipment against risks impacting devices that are publicly accessible from the Internet. This action comes in response to a FEMA warning about potential vulnerability in certain EAS encoder/decoder devices that have not been updated to most recent software versions. FEMA has observed that if EAS devices are not up-to-date, an unauthorized actor could issue EAS alerts over the EAS Participant’s infrastructure.

EAS Participants (i.e., radio and television broadcasters, wireless and wired cable television systems, satellite radio and television providers, and wireline video providers) have an obligation to ensure that their EAS equipment’s monitoring and transmitting functions are available whenever the stations and systems are operating. Regardless of make and model of EAS equipment, the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau is urging all EAS Participants to upgrade their equipment software and firmware to the most recent versions recommended by the manufacturer, and secure their equipment behind a properly configured firewall as soon as possible.

The FCC’s rules provide that failure to receive or transmit EAS messages during national tests or actual emergencies because of an equipment failure may subject the EAS Participant to enforcement. We therefore strongly encourage EAS Participants to contact their EAS equipment manufacturers with any specific questions regarding the security of EAS equipment.

Law and Regulation

DC Circuit Allows FCC Plan to Repurpose 5.9 GHz Band for Wi-Fi

The DC Circuit last week upheld a November 2020 FCC decision to make 45 megahertz of spectrum in the 5850-5925 MHz (or 5.9 GHz) band for indoor, unlicensed operations over objections from auto safety groups. The decision was applauded as a “win for consumers” by the Internet & Television Association, now known as NCTA.

“The Commission’s unanimous, bipartisan order modernizes a band that was primarily unused for over 20 years, and today’s court decision enables that important 5.9 GHz spectrum to provide consumers with even more reliable high-speed Wi-Fi and access to next-generation automotive safety applications,” the trade group said.

The 5.9 GHz band has been designated for Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) since 1999, when the FCC set aside 75 megahertz of spectrum in the band for DSRC to improve traffic safety. However, the FCC and DSRC proponents’ vision for the service never materialized and the need for additional Wi-Fi spectrum grew dramatically.

Intelligent Transportation Society of America and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (the groups that brought the suit) said the FCC’s decision "ignored the recommendations of the federal DOT, automotive safety professionals, automobile manufacturers and state highway officials."

The FCC’s 2020 decision to reallocate a portion of the 5.9 GHz band allowed for supplementary devices to use the lower 45 megahertz while keeping the remaining 30 megahertz for transportation safety uses, most notably a Qualcomm-backed auto-safety technology called Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X). C-V2X as developed within the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) as a replacement to DSRC. The technology is a step towards autonomous driving and can function without network assistance.

Wireless MVNO Fined $100,000 for Failing to Respond to Enforcement Bureau on CPNI Vulnerability

On August 5, the FCC issued a Notice of Apparent Liability to Q Link Wireless LLC (Q Link), Hello Mobile Telecom LLC (Hello Mobile), and Quadrant Holdings LLC (Quadrant Holdings) (collectively, the Companies) for failing to respond to an FCC order to provide information and documents concerning an alleged security flaw in the Q Link mobile app, which may have permitted unauthorized access to consumer proprietary information (CPNI). Q Link is a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) that offers the FCC’s Lifeline assistance program to qualifying wireless subscribers, as well as prepaid wireless service for both Lifeline and non-Lifeline subscribers. The proposed fine applies to Q Link’s associated company Hello Mobile as well, which provides nationwide wireless service to consumers.

According to a Press Release, the FCC began an investigation into Q Link’s security practices in 2021 and directed the company to provide information and documents regarding its duty to protect CPNI and other proprietary information as required by the Communications Act and the FCC’s rules. Following multiple extensions of time to respond, the FCC found that Q Link provided inadequately detailed responses to the FCC’s first letter of inquiry. The FCC then followed up directing the company to provide detailed information regarding the mobile app’s login, authentication, and account access features by July 10, 2022. While the FCC’s investigation continues, to date, the company has not provided this information.

“Slow-walking the Enforcement Bureau’s investigation into potential data breaches and providing partial answers will not cut it,” said Loyaan A. Egal, Acting Chief of the Enforcement Bureau. “We take very seriously carriers’ obligations to protect consumers’ sensitive information and require prompt and fulsome responses to our questions.”

As with all NALs, neither the allegations nor the proposed sanctions are final FCC actions. The Companies will be given an opportunity to respond and the FCC will consider the Companies’ submission of evidence and legal arguments before acting further to resolve the matter.

FCC Reminds Video Programming Distributors of Accessibility Obligations

On August 9, the FCC issued a Public Notice reminding video programming distributors - that is, cable operators, satellite television services, and “any other distributor of video programming for residential reception that delivers such programming directly to the home and is subject to the jurisdiction of the FCC” - of their obligation to make televised emergency information accessible to persons with disabilities. The FCC often issues such “reminders” ahead of increases in enforcement efforts. We encourage our VPD clients to review and ensure they are meeting these accessibility requirements. BloostonLaw attorneys are available to assist.

Generally, to ensure access to emergency information by persons who are blind or visually impaired, emergency information provided in the video portion of a regularly scheduled newscast or a newscast that interrupts regular programming must be made accessible by aurally describing the emergency information in the main audio portion of the programming. When emergency information is conveyed visually during programming other than newscasts (e.g., through “crawling” or “scrolling” text during regular programming), an aural tone on the main audio stream must accompany the visual information. Additionally, such visual emergency information must be conveyed aurally in full at least twice through a secondary audio stream, preceded by an aural tone on that stream. Aural emergency information must supersede all other programming on the secondary audio stream, including video description, foreign language translation, or duplication of the main audio stream. Finally, multichannel video programming distributors (MVPDs) must ensure that any application or plug-in that they provide to consumers to access linear programming on second screen devices (e.g., tablets, smartphones, laptops, and similar devices) over their networks as part of their MVPD services is capable of passing through an aural representation of emergency information (including the aural tone) on a secondary audio stream.

Emergency information provided in the audio portion of programming also must be accessible to persons who are deaf or hard of hearing through closed captioning or other methods of visual presentation, including open captioning, crawls or scrolls that appear on the screen. Visual presentation of emergency information may not block any closed captioning, and closed captioning may not block any emergency information provided by crawls, scrolls, or other visual means. In meeting these requirements, the FCC notes that While not required by the FCC’s rules, VPDs and video programmers are encouraged to make emergency information accessible to people with cognitive disabilities, such as through using plain language and pictorial information.

Emergency information is defined as “[i]nformation, about a current emergency, that is intended to further the protection of life, health, safety, and property, i.e., critical details regarding the emergency and how to respond to the emergency.” Critical details include, but are not limited to, “specific details regarding the areas that will be affected by the emergency, evacuation orders, detailed descriptions of areas to be evacuated, specific evacuation routes, approved shelters or the way to take shelter in one’s home, instructions on how to secure personal property, road closures, and how to obtain relief assistance.”

Sens. Cantwell, Capito Introduce Bill Promoting Broadband Along Electricity Grid

On August 10, U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), Chair of the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, and U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, introduced the Grant to Rapidly Invest and Deploy Broadband, or GRID Broadband Act. According to the press release, the bill is designed to provide “a robust new federal cost-share to spur investment in a nationwide middle-mile backbone along the nation’s existing electricity grid.”

Under the GRID Broadband Act, the Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration is charged with issuing competitive cost-shared federal grants to encourage the rapid development of a secure, nationwide broadband backbone on existing electric grid infrastructure. Recipients of GRID Broadband awards must use the funding to improve cybersecurity and smart grid technology on their electrical grid infrastructure, as well as increase middle-mile broadband capacity. Grant recipients must cover at least half of project costs, except for a qualifying not-for-profit utility or Native entity that is providing access to underserved or unserved communities.

“Building out fiber along our nation’s existing grid will provide the communications capacity needed to modernize our energy system, make our grid more cybersecure, and bring affordable high-speed Internet to tens of millions of hard-to-reach households,” said Senator Cantwell.

“In order to accomplish our goal of bringing reliable, high-speed Internet access to every West Virginia community, we need to continue bringing solutions to the table,” said Senator Capito. “The GRID Broadband Act would utilize our nation’s electric grid system to help build out and deploy broadband, especially in some of the most rural areas of West Virginia with little to no service.

The proposed bill may be fodder for legislative debate, given the tension that is arising with regard to broadband funding on top of USF-supported projects.

NORS Information Sharing Workshop to Be Held September 7

On August 9, the FCC issued a Public Notice announcing an upcoming virtual workshop for federal, state, territories, Tribal agencies, and agencies of the District of Columbia that will soon be eligible to access the Network Outage Reporting System (NORS) and Disaster Information Reporting System (DIRS). The event is designed to help educate participating agencies about the public safety benefits of the information, provide insight on how to best interpret the information, and to review the rules that must be followed to access NORS and DIRS filings.

The workshop will be held on September 7 from 10:00 AM EDT to 1:00 PM EDT utilizing the Microsoft Teams platform. Representatives of State Public Utility Commissions, State Offices of Emergency Management, and Federal Government agencies are all parties who should consider registering to attend this event. The event will also be accessible to the public, for viewing only, through Webex. A recording of the workshop will be available afterward on the PSHSB webpage.

FCC staff will provide an overview of the outage reporting rules and the outage reporting processes, technical safeguards built into NORS and DIRS, appropriate use of the data, and the importance of confidentiality. Additionally, a panel of service providers will share lessons learned on outage reporting based on past experience, including their advice regarding the factual information participating agencies should know about outages and how to best interpret the data. Finally, experts from the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will provide insights from their past use of NORS and DIRS data. They will discuss how they have used the information, the benefit to public safety, and how they ensure confidentiality is maintained.
