Kung and Christen B'anca Glenn As part of its strategy to make additional mid-band spectrum available for Fifth Generation ("5G") wireless services, the Federal Communications Commission ("FCC") recently adopted a Report and Order that revises its rules for the 2.5 GHz band - the largest contiguous band of spectrum below 3 gigahertz - in a manner that will pave the way for the Commission to auction the spectrum for commercial use next year. Specifically, the Report and Order: * removes several restrictions on the part of the band currently designated for Educational Broadband Service ("EBS") use, in favor of allowing flexible use, in order to attract commercial investment; * creates a priority filing window for Tribal entities interested in obtaining unassigned EBS spectrum; * adopts procedures to conduct an overlay auction for the remaining EBS spectrum; and * adopts county-based licensing and performance requirements for the new overlay licenses. http://www.mondaq.com/article.asp?articleid=838170&email_access=on -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my email address to write to me directly) ------------------------------ Message-ID: <97DA49D1-8C25-4ED7-8F5B-F495261E30A1@roscom.com> Date: 24 Aug 2019 11:51:40 -0400 From: "Monty Solomon" <monty@roscom.com> Subject: Bugged cell location data prompts Denmark to review 10,000 court cases The country will need to re-examine cases as far back as 2012. By Igor Bonifacic Authorities in Denmark are reviewing more than 10,000 court cases to see if flawed cellphone location data may have led to wrongful convictions, according to The New York Times. The review stems from two recently discovered bugs. The first caused the system police used to convert raw cellphone data into a picture of a device's whereabouts to omit some crucial information. Due to the bug, Danish authorities say the mobile location evidence they presented to the country's courts wasn't as precise as they had initially thought. Police say they fixed the error after discovering it in March. https://www.engadget.com/2019/08/23/bugged-cell-location-data-prompts-denmark-review-10-000-cases/ ------------------------------ Message-ID: <1FBE8F3F-C8CD-4884-B8A0-088C3379DE88@roscom.com> Date: 21 Aug 2019 16:26:54 -0400 From: "Monty Solomon" <monty@roscom.com> Subject: These 4 Gmail alternatives put your privacy first These 4 Gmail alternatives put your privacy first If you don't want your email provider, its partners, or even hackers skimming your messages, choose one of these providers, which offer end-to-end encryption and other measures. https://www.fastcompany.com/90392612/these-4-gmail-alternatives-put-your-privacy-first ------------------------------ ********************************************* End of telecom Digest Mon, 26 Aug 2019
