Communist/Marxist agenda, get rid of all land line phones. Then knock out the cell phone towers, no one can communicate and takeover begins. A great plan by Obama and his ilk.
If some scary entity was able to shut down cell phone communication in order to take over, wouldn’t they also have to shut down the internet?
And if they could do that, why would they need to first eliminate land lines? They’d have the power to shut those down as well.
Some ten years ago, I talked to an attorney who mentioned a nationwide cell tower lease consolidation project - lots of new and revised leases, being signed and recorded in land records offices all over the map. I looked up the info one of the companies that he mentioned - and found a Soros reference. Could've been a legit business investment, but anything that Soros touches makes me think the worst.
BTW, I suspect the LightSquared thing was part of some communication shutdown plan.
We need to convert FR to a dial-up BB pronto! Seriously though there a number of reasons we use wireless comms, cheaper than running copper everywhere for one. Cellular makes more sense than most other layouts like point to point. The cellular companies make more money when they control the comms (so maybe they are unwitting co-conspirators). Finally, a free and open wireless mesh might work some day, but would probably end up choked with porn with encrypted downloads. It's going to be hard to knock cellular from its perch.
