Thursday was the deadline for posting comments to the FCC's plan for the
next broadband survey, GN 12-228.  On topic of my note from last month, a
more complete report on the cell phone network performance work was posted
by the California Public Utilities Commission as an appendix to their
submission.  The link to the report is:

We took their data points and put them into GoogleEarth KML format to give
a different look at the data.

Finally, the FCC announced that there will be a national performance
measurement project:
