Qualcomm: Keep DTV Transition Date at Feb. 17
Qualcomm sent a letter to the House of Representatives and the Senate on January 19 asking that the DTV transition date remain scheduled for February 17. Qualcomm asked that if the date must be moved, that it be granted exceptions. It requested that nine TV stations spanning the Boston, Houston, Miami and San Francisco markets be forced to switch off, as it is planning a major expansion of its MediaFLO network in those markets as early as February 18. Qualcomm also said that it has a total of 15 markets ready to launch as soon as the airwaves in those 15 markets are clear, covering some 40 million additional people with the MediaFLO network. Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs said that the company has spent hundreds of millions of dollars preparing its MediaFLO network for expansion, and is ready to flip the switch on over 100 transmitters as soon as the spectrum is cleared by the TV stations. Qualcomm's partner, Verizon Communications, recently said it would accept a delay of the DTV transition granted the delay only last four months.

Crunch time for MediaFLO
Do they actually think the government cares???
What about all the people that have known about this for YEARS and all the money taxpayers have spent to pay for cards for the converter boxes. These people know, but there's no way we can hold them responsible. That would just be silly, at least under our nanny government.
