@_discord_226120601562120193:t2bot.ioillbeinmylab Awesome. Cool to know someone around here is actually already using it. 03:07:32
@_discord_226120601562120193:t2bot.ioillbeinmylab I’ve been interested in LoRA. 03:07:49
@_discord_226120601562120193:t2bot.ioillbeinmylab What kind of range do you get? 03:08:04

@_discord_322804344695029772:t2bot.ioradec About mile through dense trees (western washington in summer). 4-5 miles with more open and just a few trees. Hills pretty much kill the signal. But mesh would help mitigate that, I was just testing between two nodes. Also having repeaters up high helps. The project is fun, everyone involved is super nice and helpful, and they have been moving forward with development at a pretty steady pace. 14:38:50

@_discord_267031307945508864:t2bot.iojkilpatr LoRa is pretty cool. Very low throughput sadly. Although a lot of tech could be reused for large files at shorter distances with more storage. 17:27:56
@_discord_226120601562120193:t2bot.ioillbeinmylab Yea. LoRa is good for emergency / disaster basic communications networks. Or private basic communications networks. That’s what interests me. 17:29:17
@_discord_226120601562120193:t2bot.ioillbeinmylab Sensor data. SMS. Basic voice. Similar to how those DMR / MMDVM hotspots interest me as well for long range radio handset communications. 17:30:45
@Arceliar:matrix.orgArceliarcould also be useful for metadata. maybe advertise node location information to potential new peers17:32:21
@_discord_226120601562120193:t2bot.ioillbeinmylab jkilpatr what do you think about the application of Althea for basic communication networks like that. Public safety communications and/or private communication networks. 17:32:45

@_discord_267031307945508864:t2bot.iojkilpatr Althea is a monetization protocol that goes on top of udp. IMO a communication network application would need to be a parallel protocol focused around caching of data. As that's the primary way to make something more useful and decentralized than the current internet. 18:35:19
@_discord_267031307945508864:t2bot.iojkilpatr Just the rules of physics for low latency communication dictate the internet be organized as a small world network. 18:35:32
@_discord_226120601562120193:t2bot.ioillbeinmylab For sure. I see your point. There could be some application for something like that in the future. I see the Althea project in general as a way to democratize communication networks and make their deployment, operation, and evolution more accessible to the public. So I could see some future application in low-bandwidth, long range, communication networks. 18:38:51
@_discord_477146895068823554:t2bot.ioDSimpier I do see a synergy between public safety wireless and last mile broadband especially for microwave backhuals! For too long public safety wireless has just done its own thing, but with all of the recent fires/disasters and the recent push for better rural broadband I strongly hope there will be more inter department cooperation. 19:58:15

@_discord_226120601562120193:t2bot.ioillbeinmylab DSimpier I assume you’ve seen this? https://muninetworks.org/content/oregon-passes-new-universal-service-fee-law-support-expanded-rural-broadband-development
What are the wider effects to Althea in Oregon?
21:55:36
@_discord_477146895068823554:t2bot.ioDSimpier Yeah, so currently we get affiliate commissions from resaling other violations services (they collect taxes), so no change to us. We are also considering using whiteboxed VOIP, but in that case they also collect and remit applicable taxes. For example, the whiteboxed solution will charge us $12/mo per household, and then net operators can charge what they believe makes sense over that in their network. 22:00:04
@_discord_477146895068823554:t2bot.ioDSimpier *not violations.... VOIP 22:00:21
@_discord_226120601562120193:t2bot.ioillbeinmylab We also really want to do a VoIP service. That will be the first step in offering the same portfolio of services as large ISPs. 22:01:14
@_discord_226120601562120193:t2bot.ioillbeinmylab So this new law won’t open up more funding opportunities for you? Like grants and stuff? 22:01:54
