I was banned from the thread on the Aerosat ruling which I started.
It generated huge interest but ...
The Wisp forum has the wrong name, it should be termed: Data crossing boundaries by any means other than Telkom. And Rodent has banned me there. Be that as it may. Nobody has answered the thrust of my argument: Partner with a Vans license holder ie www.uninetwork.co.za or www.webintact.co.za to send data across the road via fiber/Dslam/Wi-fi.
The Vans license holders only allow people to send data over the street via Wi-fi in partnership with them but seemingly don't want to allow anybody
to do so via Fiber. David Jarvis and his lawyer http://www.nicciferguson.co.za are refusing to answer my question as to exactly why they
would not lay fiber across the street in Knysna. Council would obviously giver permission since they contracted Uninet to install a Network there.
Come on David, do you really think you can just ignore this question for ever?
I spoke to www.reditron.co.za this morning. They have been in discussions with Telkom since they want to lay fiber across roads all over
the country to setup their CCTV networks. Telkom said that they will lay a charge against them at Icasa if they do.
A vans license prevents a Telkom civil suit if you resell Telkom data. If no Telkom data will 'officially' flow over the street via Dslam/Fiber/Wi-fi then there is nothing Telkom can do to you and you don't need a Vans license partnership. Just ask www.jawug.za.net they sell Wi-fi gear for R2000, for people to send data across the street without a Vans license.
Rodent now wants ban all discussions of other media/equipment to transmit data across the street. One can only wonder why.
