McAdams On: Fun with Numbers
Thank you, somebody please wake up and question the numbers - what was the news the other day?
Something about the FCC white paper which placed a utilization rate of smartphones and smartphone tech at 50% of all wireless subscribers. When in fact the percentaage was a more realisticly 22% of subscribers (or thereabouts).
This rush to grab spectrum and the fast track it is on should be questioned from all possible angles.
The FCC's report is flawed, the predicted spectrum demand models are based on bad data or simply made-up/fictional/best-guess data or tea leaves and is the result of political pressures, and not sound policy.
