Clickia
Is Clickia going to get into high-altitude broadband platforms? They are taking to the skies, they might as well make some extra money while up there.

Re: Gigabit City
The reasons for holding up progress are many. It may not be very practical for plenty of areas. It all costs soooo much to do.

FCC Crackdown
It seems the industry has caught the attention of the FCC in the new efforts to stop sales of those set top boxes thorugh the internet. Citing the illegal RF radio frequency interference is probably the easiest way for the FCC to force the manufacturers to stop and retailers to refrain from selling. Of course, it's not just those boxes that emit interference, a search around the typical home will find lots or wall-warts, aka power supplies, most all now emit lots of RF noise.

Re: Gigabit City
@Michelle True, and that's why it is more likely to happen in underdeveloped areas than in place that have already invested huge amounts in their existing infrastructure and who cannot or will not undertake the disruption building it up anew will entail.

Re: Gigabit City
Ha! Infrastructure is costly. It doesn't seem possible to have a truly smart city.

Re: Gigabit City
@afwriter I think what some cities in the US claim to be smart really consist of just a few wired together things rather than a truly smart system.

Gigabit City Speed
It is great that China is able to offer dual gigabit service to 5.6 million home users and 3,000 buildings.It is great that companies realize that one solution does not solve problems. You need multiple solutions to solve problems and improve efficiency.

Many commercial buildings have slow broadband and awful Wi-Fi. In some buildings employees are unable to get a cell signal. For those who enjoy VR and gaming China's PON E2E solution will help expand the market and increase consumer demand.
