Go Zoe Wireless provides broadband access throughout East Texas and I’ve secured and exclusive e-mail interview.

1. How long have you been interested in technology and providing wireless
internet in particular?

Ashton: 5 yrs at least

2. What experiences have prepared you for running Gozoe Wireless today?

Ashton: Truly just running any business helps and Ihave managed and run 4
businesses in different fields before buying my own Computer retail store.
I have also done a lot of simple wireless networks in homes and estates
involving indoor and outdoor having lots of problems which equates to lots
of research and learning.

3. What areas do you serve currently?


Ashton: Marshall, Scottsville, Woodlawn, Leigh community, Shadowood estates, Cross
Roads, Hidden Lake and Underwood Road, Industrial Park, ETBU Campus.

4. Where are you planning to expand to next?
Ashton: Elysian Fields, Harleton, Jefferson, Hallsville, Carthage, Waskom.

5. What are the advantages of your service over satellite or other
broadband providers?

Ashton: We are not only the least expensive “last mile” solution we are by far the
fastest or largest bandwidth capable solution. We have extremely low
latency for gamers which is a real problem for satellite also VPN
connections for businesses drop with high latency.


6. What does your service generally cost?

Ashton: Basic Residential is $49.95/month

7. What are the installation fees if any?

$120

8. How fast is your service? What is the upload and download?

Ashton: Dedicated 512 up and down bursting to 1.5MB up and down
we can give up to 10/MB


9. What made East Texas a popular market you thought needed to be served?

Ashton: Basically no one else was doing it and the 900MHZ frequency just got solid
and affordable which is necessary because of the thick foliage in East
Texas.

10. I know you recently blanketed the campus of East Texas Baptist
University with Wireless Access, what can you say about this partnership
agreement and how it benefits the Faculty, Students and Staff at the
campus.

Ashton: This is a unique situation we are taking an undue load from the
University’s IT department which found itself supporting an entertainment technology more than a research tool. Which is more our specialty plus we were able to stay in our specialty by providing something it did notcurrent ly have wireless everywhere on campus. We also are going to provide
more than twice the bandwidth the students currently have access to now.

11. Do you foresee the need to acquire wireless spectrum such as that
being vacated by Analog Television broadcasts to secure your niche wireless
access for the Rural East Texas consumer?

Ashton: No there is not a problem or not too much in the unlicensed bands yet.

12. How then do you feel you can continue to compete when large carriers
are sure to roll out WIMAX in the future?

Ashton: First of all we are already here it will be hard to convince people to drop
a first class system that is working well. Plus cost for Wimax won’t be
cheap at first.

13. What advantages does your service currently offer, over your current competition?

Ashton: We can install very quickly and go where many of them cannot and the ones that can go everywhere we strongly outperform.

14. What do you foresee as your competitive edge as other carriers roll out Wimax nationwide?

Ashton: We are wimax ready when it is cost effective and widespread we can change a radio card in our Access points and we are wimax ready just that simple. We are completely wimax ready at ETBU.

13. I know your service provides Internet for many areas of East Texas,
what is your service’s contact information for anyone that’s interested?

Clearwire lands FCC approval for Wimax Broadband cards

Hughes Net small top banner save $100

Clearwire announced yesterday their completion of a legal hurdle by the FCC on-line at www.clearwire.com  This announcement has cleared the way for them to offer true WIMAX broadband PCMIA and laptop cards for the services nationwide over the Clearwire network.

This is good new for those seeking rural broadband access as Clearwire is constantly improving their network coverage and should get even greater range and mobility as they deploy WIMAX capability.

This information was found at ENGADGET and verified online at www.clearwire.com

Keep your eyes open and look to another alternative for broadband to pop up in your area!

Broadband Reality Check! FCC – finally realizes there is a problem?

FCC – Agrees to asses New Broadband Reporting Rules

The GAO recently reported in a PDF Report that “Deployment of Broadband Appears to Be Extensive, but FCC’s Form 477 Data May Not Provide an Accurate Depiction of Gaps in Broadband Deployment”

In layman’s terms the arcane 200kb broadband limit and zip code overlay approximates a poor representation of actual rural broadband access across the US.

This type of reporting has allowed the US to drop to 15th Internationally according to the ITU and this source: But finally we may have a light at the end of the tunnel. The GAO report has caused the FCC to make a “Notice of proposed Rulemaking Change” according to Ars which may lead to improvements in the state of Broadband througout the US.

I for one am very hopeful that these rule changes will lead to better data collection and a true competitive analysis of Broadband penetration of at least 512kb down with 2 or more providers per census block and zip code. The more broadband competition that exists the more likely that prices will be pressured downward where more consumers could easily afford such Broadband Internet access!
