[802SEC] +++5 Day EC Review+++802.18 Input to FCC Regarding National Broadband NOI

Dear EC,


At the May interim meeting 802.18 began working on comments to FCC NOI GN
Docket 09-51 titled "A National Broadband Strategy for Our Future". It was
not possible to complete this during the interim session and, with a comment
due date of 3 June 2009, it was decided to try and complete the comments via
conference call.


That call was held on 27 May. The resulting output, Doc. 18-09-68-r3, was
approved by a vote of 9/0/0. 


The NOI itself asks ~279 question. The participants both at the work during
the interim and on the call felt that this response should be targeted at
the policy rather than technical levels. It was also felt that there will be
many opportunities to comment as this will go through a number of
inquiry/comment rounds. Best estimates are that the FCC will be asking for
more information most in Q4 and a response can be addressed at the November


Of course 802.18 will be looking at the comments and reply comments that are
filed. It would be appropriate for 802 to begin discussing a further
response during the July plenary.


The document is available at:


I propose that the EC comment period begins now and closes on 2 June.
