What gets me (I'm an outsider in the UK), is that they seem to have used the excuse of Urban Canyon lack of space based broadband to hi-jack the frequencies for ground use. What's the betting 99% of the traffic is ground based, not space? Even though the Urban Canyonites could of course use fibre-optic broadband.

Hi

This stuff is obviously on the fast track to somewhere. There is no
practical way to come up with the information needed in the time allowed.
There's a train wreck out there in somebody's future. 

Has anybody seen an actual map of where they plan to deploy all 40,000 these
1.5KW transmitters? I'm sure that at least 2,000 of them will be in tunnels
and other RF dark caves. It's the other 38,000 that I'm wondering about.  

Bob
