can Verizon, ATT, Tmobile, Sprint ...etc post here?

They are all wireless service providers ... will the moderator exclude them? Nothing in the FAQ that says otherwise.

Wow...How did you two see this as stirring up shit and trolling? It's a valid question. Anyone can post here, but it certainly won't be in any office mouthpiece capacity.

I don't see any reason why they would want to post here nor a reason to ban or exclude them if they wanted to participate. This isn't a forum to sell your product but instead a forum dedicated to operational issues of running a wireless ISP. Why would AT&T or Sprint etc want to come here to discuss operational issues in a public forum? Makes no sense.

Cellular operators usually outsource the managment of their network to the people that actually made the gear.

Eg. Alcatel Lucent makes the telecom NZ dslams, and rather than telecom running their DSL network, Alcatel Lucent has a network operations department with staff based in NZ that run the network.
This is the case for many cellphone networks around the world.

So i doubt their staff would come to a forum like that - they know their own gear well enough to run it on behalf of their customer and have staff within the company that are specialists in subjects that we draw from each other - eg. marketing, network engineering, radio engineering etc.

The network operators probably have a "network operators group". These exist in most countries i think where the system admins from all the isp's in the country use the newsgroup/mailing list to communicate about peering issues etc.
Eg. I am a network operator in NZ, and if i need to, i can talk to one of the top system administrators of vodafone nz via the group - rather than calling their call centre.

You will find if you have a group in the USA thats similar - possibly one in each state, the top level network admins of sprint, verizon etc will be members.

Which then begs the question why would someone who in no way runs or works for a WISP be asking the question to begin with.

What?

Jim;

When we started this forum, I dunno, maybe a decade ago we made a rule that commercial carriers and vendors weren't allowed to post.

It limited ... well sort of ... limited fights between vendors.

Frankly I can't imagine why Verizon or AT&T or Sprint would really have a lot to say in this particular forum.

On a more personal note, are you finding that NNWifi is more hype than performance? Let me suggest your local cable company. Since they are the backhaul for NNWifi, they can turn off the spigot any time they want...

You knew that right?
