[LINK] 'Parasitic grid' could undermine wireless revenues
Wed, 29 Aug 2001 11:16:29 +1000
Does Qantas, the ANA Hotel etc., who use Cisco's Internet Mobile Office
in-building, need a carrier licence? Are they offering an ISP service
that *needs* to be registered with the TIO?
How are these services exempt, if they are?
Is Internet Access a 'telco-like service' in this context? (As opposed
to point-to-point carriage).
Thanks for the newsgroup lead.
PS I've just read Saliya's post but it's not clear if the above example
isn't circumventing/contravening the ACA's advice to Saliya. (Negative
connotation not implied).

regardless of whether you are using unlicensed spectrum or not, you need
a telecommunications carrier license if you want to provide telco-like
