It seems like this is a pole to pole microwave system. I wonder how this
works as power lines are moved underground. I think the household drop
could be replaced by on-pole or in-pedestal WiFi access points. I know
there are concerns about outdoor wifi access points getting to indoor
We live in a house built in 1906. Right now I can see 18 access
points, one of which is in our house. Looking at a city network about
70 miles south of here ( http://www.cityoflompoc.com/lompocnet/
see they talk about concerns with penetration to indoor
computers. They offer a wifi bridge to deal with that. I wonder if
there'd be enough bandwidth if all household communications were
handled by a wifi access point on a pole or pedestal outside the
Power poles certainly have the density such that you'd only have to
cover a few houses with each pole (pretty much the same as the number
of power, phone, or CATV drops per pole). My current thinking is that
fiber to the node makes the most sense with the "drop" from the node
to the user be by wifi.

The Problem With That Cellphone Alert About the Chelsea Bombing Suspect
A few minutes before 8 a.m. Monday, millions of New Yorkers' phones
screeched almost simultaneously. They all received the same
WANTED: Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28-year-old male. See media for pic.
Call 9-1-1 if seen.
That's it. No links, no pictures, no further context, no one to call
except 911. I got the alert while feeding my toddler breakfast, and in
my pre-coffee haze, I glanced at my phone and mistook it for an Amber
Alert. Elsewhere in the city, subway cars full of people must have
looked up from their phones and regarded one another warily. Might one
of their fellow passengers be Ahmad Khan Rahami? Young men with brown
skin might well have wondered: Might one of my fellow passengers
mistake me for Ahmad Khan Rahami?

Subject: How to send posts to The Telecom Digest
I got a complaint from a reader about bounced emails that he
submitted: I'm sending these instructions on how to send new posts and
replies to the Digest, in case anyone has had similar problems.
Please file this message for future reference.
There are two ways to post to the Telecom Digest:
***** Via Email *****
Using the address telecomdigestsubmissions [atsign goes here]
telecom-digest.org. Note that the "From" address shown on mail sent to
email subscribers includes a part that says "remove-this" as an
anti-spam measure. If you subscribe to "Individual" emails, and hit
"reply" in your email client to reply to an email, you must remove the
"remove-this." part of the domain name before you send your reply, or
it will bounce.
If you subscribe to the "Digest" version of this publication, PLEASE
try to include the "threading" information from the message(s) you are
replying to, i.e., the "Message-ID", field from the actual email which
was made a part of the digest, NOT the fields from the edition of the
Digest that you got the message out of. (This information is included
automatically if you are subscribed to "individual" messages instead
of to the "Digest" version)
For example, a recent edition of the digest had this message in the top slot:

Subject: Yahoo hit in worst hack ever, 500 million accounts
Yahoo hit in worst hack ever, 500 million accounts swiped. ...
... and I'd REALLY appreciate it if you could include the first line
when you copy & paste the message into your "create email" window. Of
course, I'd appreciate having the same subject line in your email, and
please add the "Re: " prefix to the start of the Subject line to make
it clear that you are submitting a reply.
It's also helpful if you "tag" the quoted text in the usual way, by
adding a quote citation, e.g.,

(Rest of quoted message snipped)
Please note that the right-facing arrow is the standard "quoted text"
marker on Usenet. It makes it much easier to read your post when other
readers can skim over things they've already seen, and/or set their
email clients to compress quoted text, so the ">" in the first column
of EVERY quoted line is important.
***** Via Usenet *****
If you read The Telecom Digest via the Usenet group comp.dcom.telecom,
you need only post a new message, or hit "reply" to an existing
message, and it will be automatically routed to our inbox with proper
threading info included. This applies to Google and Yahoo Groups users
