In my personal opinion, these agencies are usually quite happy to have comments from technical experts. If any of you do make comments, making them concise and not too complex will tend to ensure they are widely read and internalized. ;-)

In the details, I could certainly see folks in this community being able to credibly comment on question 13 [1] given its mention of latency and quality.


[1] "What guidance or requirements, if any, should NTIA consider with respect to network
reliability and availability, cybersecurity, resiliency, latency, or other service quality features and
metrics? What criteria should NTIA establish to assess grant recipients’ plans to ensure that service providers maintain and/or exceed thresholds for reliability, quality of service, sustainability, upgradability and other required service characteristics?"

    This is the first time in years that I felt that maybe something we
    said could get through to an agency of the US government. The deadline
    for filing is feb 4th,
    and it would be nice if some of the billions on the table got spent on
    better routers, software, and networks.


    In their RFC there are 36 questions, some of which are pretty good.

    I've been participating a bit in this forum:
    among other things I dragged out last week was the "upgrade in place"
    idea. There's 3 weeks or so to come up with
    something worth filing, but as usual these days I'm always looking for

    I tried to build a better future, a few times:
