The Internet has become one of the defining technologies. of our society It is our central medium for commerce and. communication but more importantly for our public, discourse engagement and democratic governance However. it has been hijacked by the commercial motivations that have. come to re define and constrain the availability quality. content and media of high speed access in the United States. The Author, Timothy Schoechle PhD is a communications technology expert international consultant in computer engineering. and standardization former faculty member of the University of Colorado College of Engineering and Applied.

early online version, The Internet has become one of the defining technologies of the modern world Why has. America the Internet s creator become one of its most impoverished users among all the. developed nations in terms of the proportion of its people with Internet access and the. speed and quality of that access Why has the Internet been growing in an inefficient. insufficient and unsustainable direction Is wireless access being oversold Why are. existing copper phone lines being abandoned when current protocols allow them to. deliver data at gigabit speed This report seeks to address these questions and propose. answers and solutions It explores the historical forces at play the emerging technologies. that will define the future of landlines and networks and the public policy choices and. opportunities that confront us today,The history of U S communication infrastructure. increasingly supports the proposition that it is, unrealistic to expect private monopolies duopolies or. triopolies regulated or unregulated to make the long. term investments necessary to build the enduring and. sustainable public broadband fiber information highway. that the country needs Corporations will invariably seek. the cheapest quickest and most profitable path which. has led to the current emphasis on wireless, The paper you are about to read provides a beacon of light a reasonable voice for our turbulent world. It analyzes the current state of modern communications and clearly explains the benefits and. accessibility of national wireline systems that can guarantee for everyone a superior foundation of. Internet access unequalled connectivity speed safety privacy security resiliency energy efficiency. and long term sustainability, This paper sets the record straight and fills our current information vacuum offering consumers.
business leaders and policy makers the critical facts they need to rethink a more intelligent and. secure future with reliable secure wired communications more resilient to storm flood and fire and. reducing the enormous carbon foot print from the present wireless approach It also demonstrates. why the mistaken upcoming 5G frenzy with its millions of small cell antennas destined to clutter all. neighborhoods and public right of ways is dangerous wasteful and unnecessary. At a time when we are fortunate thanks to the internet to have ready access to international medical. and scientific reports demonstrating the carcinogenicity and neurotoxicity of ubiquitous microwave. radiation emitted by wireless technologies Re Inventing Wires The Future of Landlines and Networks. explores a wide path of opportunity for establishing far safer and exceptionally reliable Internet. connectivity that we all want and need, Buried across North America are large networks of copper wire and state of the art optical fiber that. provide the bedrock for a health safe national communication system of the future For too long we. have been misled turned astray by corporate propaganda by compromised politicians and by our. own technical ignorance into accepting inferior problem ridden and expensive wireless systems. Importantly wireless systems also have negative economies for speed such that adding speed. becomes progressively more expensive which then requires more spectrum and cell sites. Capitulation to imprudent wireless mania has saddled America with vulnerable and monopolistic. communications services and technological inferiority leaving many sectors unserved and widening. the digital divide As you will read in Re Inventing Wires The Future of Landlines and Networks. the U S has fallen to 17 of 20 among developed countries in fixed broadband penetration as a. percentage of the population, Nationwide locally built and financed networks that provide optical fiber based Internet access to the. premises both metropolitan and rural are do able Wired systems are comparatively far more cost. effective and are approximately 100x faster than wireless systems Furthermore fiber to the home. avoids the potentially disastrous outcome of populations rendered sick and disabled by acute and. chronic exposure to wireless radiation pollution, Wireline municipal broadband services currently operating in such places as Longmont CO and. Chattanooga TN are demonstrating the monumental economic benefits of high speed wired systems. that pay for themselves bringing tremendous economic growth For example in Chattanooga as. Dr Schoechle points out a 220 million investment has yielded 865 million in economic growth. for the city And in Longmont a new municipal broadband system there provides access to fast. inexpensive 49 month 1 Gigabit service at a fraction of the cost others pay in many other cities. today an extremely attractive offering to businesses and residents alike Re Inventing Wires The. Future of Landlines and Networks builds the case that combining fiber access systems with electric. continued on next page, power distribution systems as in these two situations can provide many synergistic advantages and. opportunities for states and communities, Re Inventing Wires The Future of Landlines and Networks is a blueprint for an imperative.
technological renaissance and a re envisioning of national communications infrastructure Once. communities at all levels rural town city and nation realize that they must assume local. responsibility for creating safe and economical high speed Internet access for all of their citizens. this renaissance will unfold A sturdy wired communication infrastructure using wireless only as an. adjunctive technology has vast potential to become the electronic commons essential to commerce. education jobs the economy social cohesion communications and international competitiveness. This paper presents indisputable technical economic and sustainability reasons why wired. technologies portend the best and highest future I wish you intriguing and profitable reading. Frank M Clegg,Past President Microsoft Canada,CEO Canadians for Safe Technology. In the fall of 2000 I had occasion to visit Sonoma County California to sample wine and enjoy. the rugged beauty of the wild coastline One afternoon as I was returning to my lodging near. Mendocino I explored a remote and seldom traveled winding backroad across wooded coastal. hills that separate the inland valley vineyards from the coast. Rounding a curve on the narrow byway I came across a flagman with orange vest and hardhat. working with a small crew digging a trench along the road When I inquired about the purpose. of the project I was told that the crew was laying fiber optic cable Pressing further I asked. where such a cable could be going in such a remote and sparsely occupied area The flagman. replied that the crew was laying a portion of a new information highway From Silicon. Valley the fiber traversed Sonoma County winding past the vineyards and through the coastal. hills and redwood forest to Point Arena and then across the Pacific Ocean to Asia. I could not but be astonished by the contrast between the serene woodland scene in front of me. and the image of a major broadband electronic highway that would link terabyte data traffic. to the other side of the planet As the work crew was carefully covering the trench leaving the. scenic and secluded county road close to its original condition I found it staggering to imagine. that this tranquil barely paved pathway before me would soon become an essential link on a. light speed thoroughfare to China and beyond and virtually unknown and invisible to those. The following inquiry inspired in part by the above experience seeks to explore these unseen. highways and byways that we may better understand and shape where they shall take us. Tim Schoechle PhD,Boulder Colorado 2018, This report asserts that first and foremost the public. needs publicly owned and controlled wired infrastructure. that is inherently more future proof more reliable. more sustainable more energy efficient safer and more. essential to many other services Wireless networks and. services compared to wired access are inherently more. complex more costly more unstable subject to frequent. revision and upgrades and more constrained,in what they can deliver.
