FCC considers inventory of internet access points

Okay, this is downright creepy. In the name of comprehensive 911 coverage for all VoIP customers, the FCC is seriously considering compiling a comprehensive catalogue of internet access points. On p. 33 of this document, FCC chair Kevin Martin writes:

A number of possible methods have been proposed to automatically identify the location of a VoIP user, including gathering location information through the use of: an access jack inventory; a wireless access point inventory; access point mapping and triangulation; HDTV signal triangulation; and various GPS-based solutions.

I'm no administrative law scholar, but I'm fairly certain that the FCC is suggesting moves that are way out of its jurisdiction. And they thought the DC Circuit was laughing over the attempted Broadcast Flag mandate? I dare the FCC to attempt to take an inventory of every live hotspot and RJ-45 jack in the country. Even John Ashcroft would be making public statements decrying such invasivions.

Care to tell the FCC what you think? (I did.) You can do so here; be sure to indicate that you're writing in regards to proceeding number 05-196. Comments were due today; reply comments can be filed through September 12.

Hey!! Very good information here :0) I just got inside from washing and waxing my car. It is my prize posession. Took me 3 hours though. So I settled down into my office and started doing some web surfing. Anyways I am in the process of grabbing my associates degree and have spent the last 6 months researching voip business phone service. In the middle of my browsing I landed smack dab in the middle of your blog. I hope you do not think I am invading but I must say it is great blog. Even though your blog is way off base from voip business phone service I found myself cruising through your blog archives for the last hour :0) You have some nice blogging friends. Anyways, I need to get back to my mission. I wrote down your url and feel free to visit me here at voip business phone service. I am so busy so I can only update my site weekly. Keep up the awesome work.
