Re: Yo At&t and Verizon lovers
Yo, AT&T and Verizon's network is much larger, Sprint and Nextel don't even have service where I live (Mendocino County, Northwestern California), so they'd be useless to first responders here. Not to mention much of the rural west has no Nextel or Sprint, but much of it is covered by Verizon and/or AT&T, so yo, Nextel fanboy, go somewhere else and peddle your junk Nextel would be fine in the big cities, but out here, no way.
Hey ilvla2 aka calif1mc, you don't live in Mendocino County, do you? Wow, I never would have known.
As for Nextel iDEN network coverage (or lack thereof), that is entirely irrelevant, as this first-responder network proposal calls for "satellite-based" COWs that would have the advantage of not being dependent upon any (potentially overloaded or damaged) incumbent terrestrial wireless network.
"Sprint's plan calls for 100 satellite-based light trucks that would respond to emergencies, and 100,000 or more mobile handsets and equipment at up to 40 pre-selected sites." The sites would be able to ship the necessary gear to disaster sites anywhere in the continental U.S. within four hours.
ilvla2, get a new act. Yours was already old & tired on HoFo two years ago.
