    Adding a For-Profit to the Nonprofit Brings 100-gig Success for OneCommunity

    in Internet

    Creating a nonprofit or tapping into an existing one has enabled dozens of communities to launch successful broadband networks and digital inclusion programs. Cleveland, OH's OneCommunity nonprofit organization just announced a for-profit arm that's bringing 100 gigs to businesses in 24 counties in northeast Ohio, and subsequently raising services and benefits to a whole new level.
    Financial sustainability of efforts to close the digital divide as well as deliver broadband services is often a challenge, particularly when serving low-income and sparsely populated communities. OneCommunity's for-profit, Everstream, promises sizeable revenue streams by serving pent up demand from businesses. Communities everywhere should closely evaluate this strategy to determine if a similar approach can benefit their constituents. 
    Brett Lindsey, President of Everstream and COO of OneCommunity, explains how their strategy evolved, what benefits it brings to the nonprofit and subscribers, and what steps stakeholders should take to determine if this strategy is appropriate for their particular needs. The Everstream story is highly relevant because urban communities' broadband needs are overlooked in national policymaking because some assume metropolitan areas have plenty of access to superfast Internet access.

    What makes the most recent WAAS hosted payload special?

    in Technology

    On this episode of the GovSat Report Radio, we revisit a government satellite program that we’ve discussed once before on the program – the Federal Aviation Administration’s Wide Area Augmentation System, or WAAS for short.
    WAAS is a terrestrial and satellite network that augments GPS and ensures greater precision in the routing and piloting of aircraft. Needless to say, if you’ve ever flown on an airplane, you’re probably very happy that WAAS exists – even if you weren’t aware of it.
    WAAS payloads have historically been launched into orbit as hosted payloads aboard commercial satellites. And that didn’t change with the most recently-launched WAAS payload, which was sent into orbit aboard SES-15, a hybrid satellite operated by commercial satellite provider, SES.
    On this episode, we’re joined by representatives from the companies that made the most recent WAAS payload a reality - Raytheon and SES GS - who will speak to us about the launch, the SES-15 satellite and the future of the WAAS program moving forward. They are:
    - Bryan Benedict, the Senior Director of Innovation and Satellite Programs at SES GS - Dana Hargrave, the Senior Program Manager for WAAS at Raytheon

    BONUS EPISODE: We're still on hiatus, but here's some tech news!

    in Technology

    It's been a few weeks since we ended season 1. Have you missed us? We've missed you!
    We're still in between seasons, but as we promised in episode 20, we thought you deserved some bonus episodes to keep your technology podcast thirst quenched. Here's the first bonus episode filled with some of the latest tech news, as well as an update on where we're at with the production of season 2!
    Firstly, we take a look at the recent ridiculousness that was Amazon Prime Day. In the lead-up, it was touted by the online retail giant as the biggest sales day since Woolworths went bust. Except, it wasn't. In the UK, the deals were a little bit disappointing, and in the US, Amazon was hit by massive allegations that it had inflated prices before the sale, only to drop them on the day in a bid to make the deals seem better than the were!
    Also in Amazon news, small business that sell on the website are up in arms in the US over plans to extend the company's no-reason returns policy to all marketplace sellers. They say it will 'crush' their business, but the fact is this kind policy is the law in the EU. Has it crushed small businesses there?
    We also look at news that a Tesla has broken the car's distance record and driven more than 1,000 km - or almost 700 miles - along with alarming, but not surprising, research that far too many of us are losing sleep to binge watching shows on services like Netflix or Amazon Prime.
    At the end of the show, there's also an update on the production of our second season. We're quite excited about it, and we want you to be as well!

    Have a Business in Jacksonville? – There’s an App for That

    in Technology

    When it comes to using apps to promote a business, the first thing that comes to mind for most business owners is Google Adwords or Facebook.  That’s because Google has 71% plus of the search traffic and Facebook has more than 2 billion users.  They also have an advertiser interface that’s is relatively easy to use.  A manager sitting at a bar can literally control and Adwords Express campaign or tap Boost on Facebook to advertise and after entering their credit card number, their advertising starts running.  Whereas with other apps, like Yelp, you must claim your business, then you have to contact an account representative and do more labor to spend money on ads.  This goes for other apps as well.
    Having said that, Apps cost lots of money to create and online PPC advertising can be very expensive. That's why, in this episode we are reviewing the intoGo app, the "Official Destination App” -  sponsored by Visit Jacksonville. It's great for consumers because it lets them "find fun fast" and it’s great for businesses because it matches consumers with products and services they want, close to where they are or want to be. So, tune in and tell your friends in Jacksonville to listen to today’s BTR show, as we reviews in the ins and outs of finding fun fast in Jacksonville with the intoGo app.

    It's Tax Time. What You Need To Know About Income Tax Fraud

    in Technology

    Join Jim Blue and Steve Weisman in an encore broadcast of a discussion on how to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of income tax fraud.
    According to the IRS, “Tax-refund fraud is expected to soar again this tax season, and hit a whopping $21 billion.“ Thousands of people have lost millions of dollars and their personal information to tax scams and fake IRS communication.
    The most common way income tax fraud occurs is when a thief files an income tax return using a victim’s Social Security number, along with a counterfeit W-2, indicating that a large refund is due.
    Steve Weisman is a lawyer, a college professor, author, and one of the country's leading experts in scams and identity theft. He writes the daily blog scamicide.com, where he provides daily update information about the latest scams.
