Free broadband for America has inched closer to reality: The plan, after two years of debate, is finally on the calendar for a full vote by the Federal Communications Commission.
Assuming The Plan is approved at the FCC's Dec. 18 meeting, one of the agency's last before President-elect Barack Obama takes office, free broadband could become reality within a year.
First proposed in 2006, The Plan calls for a chunk of airwaves called AWS-3 (now idle) to be used for wireless broadband across the USA. Under terms contemplated by the fcc, the winner of the AWS-3 auction would have to reserve at least 25% of network Capacity for Free broadband.
The winner would be allowed to charge for other services, including Premium broadband that would offer faster speeds.
Assuming there are no last-minute snags, the aws-3 auction will take place next year.
The FCC plans to impose several conditions. …

The most underrated band in the world. They could have been really big. I always wonder how they would have sounded with a great producer.
2. Union Carbide Productions
Classic band, but just not classic their material is still great. Listen to Golden Age and you will understand.
3. In Flames
Sweden's best metal band ever. (but I really do not like their productions there is too much treble)
4. Mary Beats Jane
Ahead of their time. Really liked their first album.Their second is ok to but too Tool influenced. With the singer from The Haunted.
5. The Plan
Their first album is really good. Fav track:Fell A Mile
6. The Haunted
I love the sound their guitars. Really brutal. Like they are playing on wire instead of strings. I would be great if In Flames could borrow some of their guitar sounds.
7. Her Majesty
Amazing stuff. Timo Räisänen is a brilliant guitarist.
8. Broder Daniel
I will just say Shoreline listen to that and you will understand. But their first album has not really survived the test of time.
28 Nov 2007, 16:35 by TomG88This is not going to be a detailed account as all my time was spent skanking/moshing/pogoing madly so I didn't have much time to think about the quality and finer nuances of the music. With live ska music, it's a case of if it has a ska beat, a good chorus and some brass/woodwind, I am happy. So happy in fact that I actually slightly injured myself and couldn't walk properly for a day afterwards... Beware, 8 hours of skanking may cause injury!
Bands that were just OK:
Frank Butcher and the Slags - i wonderered why they all looked so young and it turns out it's cos they all still go to a grammar school very near my house...
JB And The Gang
Bands that were good:
Mr Shiraz (a bit heavy but great stage presence)
Six.Point.Five (another band local to me, from MK no less)
Hypo Psycho (not enough brass to achieve 'very good' status!)
Bands that were very good:
Make It Better Later: Ok i'm being hippocritical as there wasn't any brass at all here, just a fiddle…

I've managed to connect my computer to my old cassette stereo, and I'm making mixtapes from mp3s, this is pure meditation I tell ya!
I've kinda lost track of what I've been recording but it features for instance The Plan, Lasse Lindh, Tingsek, Bob Dylan, Justice Vs Simian, Quit Your Dayjob, The Knife, Josh Rouse, Lars Demian, Hundarna and Håkan Hellström.
Ehm, my point is, that this was fun. Mixtapes is fun.
13 Mar 2007, 21:35 by rataxesJag har funderat lite kring hur jag ska sammanfatta min musiksmak egentligen. Till en början hade jag svårt att hitta något mönster eller sammanhang alls. Men jag har nog kommit fram till att det finns ett sätt att se det hela på.
Jag gillar verkligen jazz i alla dess former, fokuseringen på melodier och den medryckande takten. Precis som jag verkligen uppskattar dödsmetall tack vare det fascinerande mörkret. Och jag älskar att lyssna på soul och låta mig ryckas med fullständigt. Jag mår dessutom så himla bra när jag lyssnar på riktigt bra elektronika. Och jag kan inte göra annat än att dras med när jag lyssnar på postrock, gärna i sin allra mest högljudda form. Jag kan också bli lyrisk över nya rockband med tung förankring i rockhistorien. Men någonstans är det ändå självklart vad det jag egentligen är mest såld på.
Om jag får välja lyssnar jag helt enkelt på enkel indiepop när jag mår som bäst. Musik som i sin enkelhet får mig att bli lycklig och vilja dansa. …
