John Myers

Hey all-

Welcome to my blog. The fine folks at the BeyeNETWORK™ have provided me with this forum to offer opinion and insight into the worlds of telcommunications (telecom) and business activity monitoring (BAM). But as with any blog, I am sure that we (yes we... since blogging is a "team sport"...) will explore other tangents that intersect the concepts of telecom and BAM.

In this world of "Crossfire" intellectual engagement (i.e. I yell louder therefore I win the argument), I will try to offer my opinion in a constructive manner. If I truly dislike a concept, I will do my best to offer an alternative as opposed to simply attempting to prove my point by disproving someone else's. I ask that people who post to this blog follow in my lead.

Let the games begin....

Members of the FCC are again rattling their sabers on an open network access issue. In his article, Grant Goss looks at how FCC members are "warning" the wireless service providers about potential oversight intervention and/or regulation.

Personally, I think it is a little early to start "warning" people about something that hasn't happened. Yet, I liked the observation from Robert Frieden about handset subsidies. Wireless service providers talk about how two year contracts are designed to subsidize handset costs. However they don't give any type of discount if you have your own phone. That would be an alternative model to answer my question about locked vs unlocked handsets.

As against regulation as I am, I would have no problem with the FCC asking the following question if subsidized plans were more expense than unsubsidized plans:

"Are you bundling product and service? Or are you gouging because you can?"
