One thought on “Public Safety begins with broadband”

  1. O’Shea himself points out why a dedicated network is stupid — if you can get all the features need with existing commercial networks why build a new one? Why not just pay to upgrade those networks to be better and more reliable? This way consumers also benefit. It is trivial to modify existing wireless networks, especially those GSM-based, to allow premptive service to certain users (public safety). What is not trivial is upgrading them to be more reliable and have better coverage, but that is something you would have to tackle in building a network from scratch anyway.
