That's interesting, thanks for that info, Mike. Jason has a good point in that a lot of the "reporting" on this topic so far has been ill-informed...

What else is new? ;-) It’s frustrating where I sit but sometimes reporters don’t like when facts get in the way of a good story. It comes with the territory, so I’m used to it.

I see a lot of strong xfinity signals stomping on an already crowded 2.4 G spectrum.

Fair point. But 2.4GHz was a bit of a mess before we came along with this service. 5GHz is a lot better and we were one of many companies in favor of the recent FCC decision to expand unlicensed 5GHz spectrum. See

So just to be clear, I'm not being critical at this point, I'm simply interested in separating the facts from the hype.

No worries! :-)
