read an article where small regional cell companies are paying through the nose for "data" roaming to the big boys when their customers are out of their network.Once we get our gateways up graded could G* look to steal some of this business and put these regional carrier customers on our TLPS instead of them having to use ATT or Verizon?
Could this be why Clear Talk came out in support of our NPRM?
total operating losses since inception.
These also can be used to offset future tax bills or used by an acquiring company.
Ok here's a question: I saw the video from Jay and John Dooley back in late 2012 discussing with analysts how all this would come together. The one area I didn't understand was the firmware upgrades required by the network operators. Who pays for these upgrades? Does everyone of their thousands of ASP need to be upgraded before it works? If they sign a deal with Amazon and all the cells don't upgrade to channel 14, will it work? Will a communication between other channels be able to receive info from me if they don't upgrade their device to receive from channel 14 my text? etc.etc.etc.
I think you get the point. Will it be as easy to "turn it on" without major issues?
How long before we are a go, as if it is 3-6 months, would one might want to sell into the news and wait till the network is ready to go???
Well if you got in at .80 and Cramer pumped when it was $ 4.40 and sold his pump to $ 4.75 and got out then bought back at $ 3.95, then we need to THANK the "clown" of CNBC !
I see gallons delivered to be 64 mil+ over last years 52.6 mil.
I see rev. to be $ 100 mil as IMW China sales kick in.
With $ 95.3 in rev for first quarter and $ 100 mil in second, this would compare to $181.2 mil for 6 months last yr. But if you take out from last yr $ 32.2 VETC and $15.5 BAS sale, net to compare to this yr 6 months is only $ 133.5.
This net amount for 6 mos 2013, is only $38.2 mil above 1st quarter rev 2014.
Y-O-Y net rev will be huge !!
Losses will be higher, but rev will grow 20+% for the foreseeable future.
Don't think we'll see a hurry up and wait till Sept/Oct decision.
My cyber dollar bet is mid August decision.
Their meeting 6-30 was with the Commissions International Bureau. Do they need this commission approvals along with FCC? If so, will this mean they are approved worldwide or will they need other countries approvals to operate in this bandwidth??
"The International Bureau administers international telecommunications and satellite programs and policies, including licensing and regulatory functions. The bureau also promotes pro-competitive policies abroad, coordinates global spectrum activities and advocates U.S. interests in international communications and competition."
talking about the schools computer labs and desks, not the kids who bring computers to school. Let's see rural schools don't have internet now, so the govt is giving them high speed access to what? E-Rate may sound great politically on the 6 o'clock news, but when these schools have 5-10 yr old or no computers, high spped access aint gonna help.
"Time is on the long share holders side", until the convertible debt starts coming due.
If we aren't above $ 15.50 per share by I believe when the first convertible debt comes due in 2016, massive dilution will hit.
the problem with e-rate is the fact yes the govt will pay for cabling and monthly Internet bills, they won't pay for computers, laptops, Ipads etc.
It's like buying a kid an ice cream cone with out the ice cream.
Since TLPS will be a private network operating on it's own frequency, could this be a major play for the backbone of IoT.
The Internet of Things (IoT, also Cloud of Things (CoT)) refers to the interconnection of uniquely identifiable embedded computing like devices with the existing Internet infrastructure. Typically, IoT is expected to offer advanced connectivity of devices, systems, and services that goes beyond machine-to-machine communications (M2M) and covers a variety of protocols, domains, and applications. The interconnection of these embedded devices (including smart objects), is expected to usher in automation in nearly all fields, while also enabling advanced applications like a Smart Grid.
A thing, in the IoT, can refer to a wide variety of devices that range from heart monitoring implants, biochip transponders on farm animals, an automobile with built-in sensors to field operation devices that assist fire-fighters in search and rescue.
Due to the ubiquitous nature of connected objects in the IoT, an unprecedented number of devices are expected to be connected to the Internet. According to Gartner, there will be nearly 26 billion devices on the Internet of Things by 2020. ABI Research estimates that more than 30 billion devices will be wirelessly connected to the Internet of Things (Internet of Everything) by 2020. As per a recent survey and study done by Pew Research Internet Project, a large majority of the technology experts and engaged Internet users who responded—83 percent—agreed with the notion that the Internet/Cloud of Things and embedded and wearable computing will have widespread and beneficial effects by 2025. It is, as such, clear that the IoT will consist of a very large number of devices being connected to the Internet.
somebody has to provide connectivity ??
like a politician, avoid answering the asked question.
I could give a rats #$%$ about enn.
I asked about blu !!
Depends on gallons sold from Redeem, but I think it could be better than VTEC due to the fact that a lot of the VTEC credit was kept by the buyers; i.e. waste mgt, etc. CLNE sold over 200 mil gallons and only reaped $25mil+ off the .50 credit.
RFS2 credits are sold to energy companies and can't be used by the users buying the fuel at the pumps.
My guess would be $15-25 mil in 2015.
May have lost VTEC, but replaced by RFS2 credits !
CNG or LNG from Waste-Derived Biomethane to Get RFS2 Credits
On the Same Basis as Does Cellulosic Ethanol, the U.S. EPA Decides
The U.S. EPA is henceforth granting the same level of RFS2 – renewable fuel standard – credits to compressed natural gas and liquefied natural gas derived from sewage or landfill gas as it does for cellulosic ethanol, according to a new regulation signed on July 2.
“EPA is now characterizing biogas as a transportation fuel feedstock,” states the final rule.
Both CNG and LNG from landfill gas, or gas from agricultural municipal wastewater, or municipal solid waste digesters, and separated MSW digesters now qualify as “additional fuel pathways,” the agency says – earning the same RFS2 credits as cellulosic ethanol.
‘Great News for Fleets,’ Says Clean Energy Fuels
“These pathways have the potential to provide notable volumes of cellulosic biofuel for use in complying with the RFS program,” the agency said, “since significant volumes of advanced biofuels are already being generated for fuel made from biogas.” (emphasis added)
According to Harrison Clay, president of Clean Energy Renewable Fuels (a Clean Energy Fuels subsidiary), “EPA’s correct classification of natural gas derived from landfills as cellulosic biofuel is a positive development for Clean Energy’s Redeem renewable natural gas product.
“The classification of biogas CNG and LNG as a cellulosic biofuel will send a strong economic signal to producers that there is a growing and viable market for biogas vehicle fuel under the RFS,” Clay says. “This will increase the availability of Redeem and ensure we can meet customers’ growing demand.
“This new rule will encourage the market for Redeem, which is the cleanest fuel commercially available and less expensive than diesel,” Clay told F&F via a company spokesman. “This is great news for fleets seeking a viable renewable fuel solution available today,” he said.
facts.....Tell us how Blu is doing these days ??? Are they still in business ??
