Google Offers To Buy FCC Airwaves -- 2008

Google/s Plan



2010/ImagesNBS100/GoogleNBSRFAirwaves108w.jpg1. Feature Story / \ August, 2007 / If Google Inc. has its way, your Wireless Telephone™ (cellphone, iPhone or iHandy) -- will work on any wireless network. Telephone companies will then be enabled to sell high-speed Internet WiFi access to its customers -- at cut-rate prices.
•• • Google thinks that would be a wonderful world -- for consumers as well as its own bottom line -- and it's proposing "to pony up $4.6 billion in a long-shot bid to create it," reports the latimes.
• • In August, 1907, the Federal Communications Commission, (FCC) and Google didn't exist. In fact, when the developers of the Wireless Telephone™ in 1902 were striving to win a place in the hearts of consumers and in the world of telephonic and telegraphic land-lines, there were no takers.
• • When NBS Wireless offered their space-linked airwave telephone monopoly to AT&T -- there were no Federal or State regulatory controlling factors around to takes bids to sell NBS's etherotalk high-speed Internet WiFi access.
• • If the big Trust monopolies wanted access to the NBS high speed RF ethero waves, that traveled at the rate of 187,000 miles per second, they could have had it, for just the price of an admission ticket. But they had other ideas. The big Trusts would make a better long-term deal with the regulators.
Google's Minimum Bid to the trustees of the FCC - $4.6-Billion
•• • Google explained to the boardmembers of the FCC, the government arm holding the spectrums in trust . . . that Google would offer the minimum bid of $4.6 billion . . . subject to a few "iffies."
•• • It wasn't until the king of Web search information snaped in a few key words to weed out "truths", about the history of the Wireless Radio Wave, that they finially caved in and offered to dig into its mountain of cash to transform a chunk of prime public airwaves into a high-speed VATS data freeway. If successful, it could drive down the price of Internet access by creating more competitors to phone and cable companies.
• • Google promised to bid in an upcoming federal auction of spectrum that is ideal for fast wireless Internet service -- but only if regulators agree to the company's proposals to require open access to those airwaves. That means any device, service, software application or network could operate on it without restrictions.
•• • "That would be revolutionary," said Bob Williams, director of Consumers Union's HearUsNow.org, a website that promotes telecommunications competition.
• • "If you want high-speed Internet service, you basically have a choice of two, and in a lot of places you don't have any choice ... and that situation has to change."
• • Despite its promise to bid, Google may not want to license the airwaves itself. But it does want to force them open to increase competition with cable and phone companies -- and make it cheaper for people to get on the Web and use Google's growing array of services.
2006/Imagespeople/%23AT%26TisAT%26TbackwithNBS108w.jpgPart 02 / REFLECTING ON THE 1902 NBS / AT&T Airwave DEAL
The Kentucky based wireless company figured AT&T and Bell's land-line connections would lead them to their open access telephone number and monthly billing system.
• • What was the theme NBS Wireless was promoting? "A Wireless Telephone™ in every home," -- at prices lower than sending a Western Union telegram or a Marconi "etherograph message." MORE AT&T STORY.
• • The dream of Nathan B. Stubblefield, 1860-1928, -- was that the space-linked Ether wave emitted from his Wireless Telephone™ -- (that could be sucked into telephone land-lines using his aerials), would turn his Wireless Telephone™ into a force for good rather than destruction. MORE STORY - The NBS Radio Trust
• • The power of his Wireless Telephone™ has been unraveled many times on Google. Using Iraq + destruction, lead us to the battlefields in Iraq. Someone was using iPhones to set off bombs. MORE vGOOGLE STORY.
• • Stubblefield's space-linked voice Ether-wave Frequencies, are now sometimes referred to by the FCC as, "Spectrums, Radio Frequencies or RF signals." Marconi called them "etherotalk messages." MORE STORY: The Auto Radio Patent.
• • The Radio Act of 1927, placed the Department of Commerce in charge . . . then seven years later, (1934) -- Congress created the Federal Communications Commission, (FCC) to hold in trust, the RF Wireless Telephone™ seized by regulatory action between the years, 1910-1934.
• • Other agencies that took control of the Ether/Radio-wave industry during that time included: The U.S. Navy and the Post Office Department. Since that time the Radio/TV industry, as well as the FCC, have defined and re-defined Wireless Telephone™ broadcasting as a separate distinct science, detached from Radio broadcasting.
• • Now 80 years later, after the Radio Act of 1927 was enacted . . . "it's Google's turn to win a place in the world of Stubblefield's "etheroVATS dial tone RF waves being sucked into telephonic land-lines with special antennas . . . ," says Malcolm MacFarlane, a spokesman for the NBS Regulatory Study group.
• • The study group recognizes the radio/tv comprehensions of Google. Number one, Google understands the history and psychic Zeitgeist in the world funding. Will it be payTV or double-click ads. "Plus," continued, MacFarlane, "they might be following the $30-Billion legal claim filed by attorney Charley Portz, against the FCC for "the non-payment over absolutely" for regulatory seizure of frequencies - 1910-1917."

• • Those who are following the Portz case for the Stubblefield Radio Trust, know this will be one of the biggest published RF spectrum auctions in the nation's history.
• • Google's offer comes at a time when investors are raising questions about how much money the company is spending to put its ambitious plans in place, and how the project will be funded, continued MacFarlane.
2006/Imagespeople/%23FCCcommitmentLogo01108w.jpgPart 03 - The FCC Plan, Includes the New Analog to Digital coverter boxes. / The Mountain View, Calif.-based company wants to prove its seriousness and counter big wireless companies such as AT&T Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc., which say the conditions would make the spectrum virtually worthless.
• • Google is still in conflict with AT&T Inc. and Verizon Wireless over rules for the auction. The two biggest U.S. mobile-phone carriers plan to use the airwaves to offer more of their own mobile Web content, while Google wants the network to be open to all devices. Google also wants the spectrums to be resold if there's excess capacity.
/Imagespeople/FTCcommitmentLogo46w.jpgThe New Analog to Digital Converter.
• • Bloomberg News reported that FCC chairman differs with Google's plans for airwaves. The FCC trust believes that the airwaves to be given up by TV broadcasters in 2009 -- as they switch from RF analog signals to digital analog signals could fetch much more for the federal treasury to help the FTC trust finance the converter boxes needed to make the switch possible.
• • Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin J. Martin said an airwaves-leasing proposal by Google Inc. might discourage bidders in a government auction from developing their networks.
• • With Google saying that it would bid at least $4.6 billion for the airwaves if the winner of the auctioned spectrum was required to lease access to the airwaves at wholesale rates. That may make bidders "less willing" to build out that network, Martin said.
• • The auction rules should provide "maximum incentive to invest in the underlying wireless network," Martin said during a hearing of a House subcommittee on telecommunications and the Internet.
• • Martin, who has proposed a minimum bid price of $4.6 billion for the spectrum Google is seeking, wants the winner to open its network to any legal mobile device or application. Although his plan would allow companies to resell airwaves, it wouldn't require it.
• • "The proposal I put forth isn't designed to facilitate entry of any particular company" into the wireless market, Martin said. "It's not about any of the companies but about the consumers."

4. The Google Plan / Wireless companies control all access to the spectrum they license from the government, which is why Apple Inc.'s iPhone can't be used on any network other than AT&T's.
• • Under Google's plan, people could connect any device to any network and run any software they want on their phones, including free Internet-based calling systems such as Skype.
•• • But most important for boosting competition, companies would be able to use the airwaves at a wholesale price to offer their own Internet access.
• • "In short, when Americans can use the software and handsets of their choice, over open and competitive networks, they win," Google Chief Executive Eric Schmidt wrote in a letter to FCC Chairman Kevin J. Martin.
• • The effort is backed by public interest groups and a coalition of major technology companies including Intel Corp., EBay Inc., Yahoo Inc., DirecTV Group Inc. and EchoStar Communications Corp.
• • But it faces huge obstacles in Washington, where the politically powerful phone companies have been fighting it.
• • Martin last week supported Google's plan to allow people to use any device or software on a network, but not the more controversial open-access requirement that many view as the key to creating a viable nationwide competitor to phone and cable companies in broadband access.
• • Martin worried that imposing the conditions could make it difficult for auction winners to get funding to build their networks. The FCC is still drawing up the rules for the airwave auction.
• • AT&T slammed Google's offer Friday, saying it was just an attempt to pressure the FCC to "stack the deck in its favor."
• • Under the traditional auction rules, Google says it and other companies can't outbid the big phone companies because of their built-in advantage of existing networks of cellular towers and pools of customers.
•• • "It doesn't matter whether or not Google has the deep pockets -- at some point you've got to say this is just an unreasonable investment," said Richard Whitt, Google's telecom and media counsel in Washington. "We're just trying to un-skew things enough to give Google ... or a DirecTV or an EchoStar or a Yahoo or whoever comes in there at least a decent shot for the spectrum."
• • • The spectrum is considered ideal for providing wireless high-speed Internet access.
•• • Rob Sanderson, an analyst with American Technology Research Inc., said Google had much to gain from lowering the price of high-speed Internet access. But he doubted Google wanted to buy any airwaves and provide the service itself.
•• • "They're really trying to encourage an environment where others … can step in and become competitors," he said.
