    Making the open access/wholesale model work for community broadband

    in Internet

    ATTENTION: There is heavy static in show's first 3-4 minutes, but it clears up after that.


    The pride of the pack when it comes to community broadband business models is the open-access model in which the local government or public utility owns the physical network and private-sector ISPs deliver services to subscribers. It looks like a relatively easy model to pursue, and dozens of communities say this is their preferred option. In reality, making open access work is a monster challenge requiring intense, constant effort. 


    Mt. Vernon, WA has built a small cadre of ISPs for its open-access fiber network. Information Services Director Kim Kleppe details how they overcame obstacles and seized opportunities to build a successful network that is financially sustainable. Listeners will learn:



    why getting the second ISP is the hardest job in the world;
    how to set pricing structure
    tips for creating win-win situations
    marketing tactics that attract ISPs and subscribers
    how to keep everyone on the same page


    Kleppe and his colleagues have 12 years experience building and refining their open access model. Communities just getting their networks off the ground can really benefit from the lessons of those who've been in the trenches a while.

    Considering Local Banks for Funding Your Broadband Network? Why Not!?

    in Internet

    [Due tech difficuties, there is a 5-min audio blackout. You can fast-foward when this happens.]


    Sometimes the obvious solution to a broadband challenge is right there in front of a community. Like money. Waverly, IA realized that not just one but THREE local banks held the key to the city's fundraising success. While some communities are stressing out over funding sources, financial institutions could be the linchpin that get many public networks off the ground.


    Who better than local banks and credit unions are served by the economic impact of broadband? New employers moving in, existing companies hiring, increasing property values, people staying in town - when economies thrive, banks prosper. Darrel Wenzel, General Manager of Waverly Utilities, explains how their financial institutions came to be partners in the city's broadband development. He also gives tips to communities that see this strategy potentially playing out well for their constituents.


    Iowa is a hub of excitement these days, with Waverly being the third gigabit city in the state to move forward. The city is hot on the trail of high-speed Internet, cable and phone services for both residents and businesses. Waverly Utilities and city officials are pleased that general taxpayers and ratepayers are not at risk as revenue bonds have been secured and will be paid back by broadband subscribers.

    The Gift of Access Bars

    in Self Help

    What if one simple modality could create more ease being you and with everything you have going on in your life?


    If you ever thought that change should be easier, more gentle and without have to figure it all out before you can have it, then this might be what you have been looking for.


    If you have been listening to our show, then you are now familiar with the concept of your choices creating your life and hopefully have been practicing playing with it in your own life! Well, with this modality of Access Bars, it makes choice far easier and more clear. Bars can be a great addition to your life for those times you really don't get that you have a different choice, or any choice - this modality opens up that blockage and stuckness to allow in new possibilities.


    If you can lay on a massage table or sit in a chair for about an hour and allow a practitioner to gently touch 32 different points on your head, then you can "have your bars run". Access Consciousness has over 2000 facilitators around the world offering this life changing modality, it is likely there is one near you!

    in Technology

    With the inclusion of the thumbprint scanner on iPhones, it's safe to assume that practically every American has had some interaction or introduction with biometrics. However, are fingerprint and other biometric factors the best way to secure our devices and accounts?


    In this episode of the Access Granted Radio, we sit down with Authomate's CEO - Jeff Schmidt - to discuss the use of biometrics in authentication and why they may not be the perfect solution that many peopleconsider them to be.
