iBurst is yet to make a cent of profit. Some of the shareholders have deep pockets but will they put more money into a lost case? Would you put a hundred million of your own money into iBurst?
Agreed - ICASA is a regulator and should be dealing withall parties in the same manner.snip ...This is why ICASA will, and should, seize any equipment used to operate illegal links.
Agreed too. iBurst deserved the tough action. Their users did not.Anyone remember how iBurst went after WISPs some years ago, claiming that they interfere with iBurst signals? I recall ICASA taking down WISP equipment as well due to iBurst's complaints...
What comes arround, goes arround my friend. They got EXACTLY what they deserved. Pay your license fees, and go play nicely like everyone else does....
As an aside, not paying spectrum fees is not the same as stealing, as averred above. Neither the State nor ICASA own the spectrum, and we should vigorously resist any attempts they make to assert ownership. The spectrum is common patrimony not subject to ownership, and hence words/concepts like theft and stealing don't apply and should be avoided lest we cede too much to Caesar.
Tax, perhaps. Admin fees, maybe.
What still makes me nervous is that they 'walked into a datacentre'. High end security and confined access? "Its ok, we from icasa".
