You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Engage the communications technology community on their own turf

    FCC's engagement with industry tends to be at major trade associations like NAB and CTIA.

Some of the speaking of commissioners and bureau chiefs should be a major technical meetings.

    Similarly there should be outreach to the techies in areas that are major R&D hotspots like Silicon Valley, San Diego, Austin, and Boston Route 128 area. This was done under the Hundt chairmanship and included a presentation by senior officials on FCC basic…

    • Further cooperation with and education of local/municipal government

      With regards to wireless informational and preemption issues, such as RF concerns, towers, roles of amateurs, towns are more likely to learn the hard way fighting with cell phone companies, tower operators, amateurs, because they don't understand why such issues are FCC rather than local. Nobody wins but the lawyers defending towns and infrastructure owners. Info sharing among the same parties could produce more effective and locally tailored communications regarding things that affect local consumers, such as TV changes, broadband coverage data verification and broadband opportunities, cellular coverage improvement, and other local issues that are federally monitored or managed. Working…

            • Stop printing licenses, drop posting requirements, and make all authorizations available online.

              In terms of postage, printed paper, and the logistics behind all that, the FCC could save enormous amounts of money and become vastly better engage your foremost constituency (licensees/permittees) by removing the license posting requirements, cease printing paper licenses, and instead make licenses, permits, and authorizations available online.
