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 http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2014/03/more-wi-fi-is-better-fcc-expands-use-of-5-ghz-spectrum/
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! :-)
