[WISPA] outsourced monitoring for WISPs

Hi, I'm pretty sure I've seen advertisements for outsourced network monitoring for WISPs on the list.  My recollection is that some of the larger WISPs have created this as a revenue source for other WISPs.

I met with a candidate for a service like this yesterday and I'd like to present some options to them.

Can anyone kindly provide a source or two?

Kind regards,

Brett Bonomo

[WISPA] Insuring Employees


OK, so I signed up with ADP to make sure we were clean with the IRS on 
how we provided insurance ( and 401k)

well - they completely screwed up - first about how medical benefits are 
taxed when paid for biz owners, and then about cafeteria health plans 
for everyone else and really messed up the 401k.

anyone have a resource they use, to allow employers to be 100% 
compliant, keep employees as direct hires, and provide ACA compatible 
insurance, and fix the mess ADP allowed to happen???

I have tried reading the IRS and DOL docs online - just don't have the 
background to get to what it means to me.

ACA as interpreted by the IRS, prohibits us to pay people to shop for 
their own plans - before or after tax !!!  - if you read 
http://www.dol.gov/ebsa/faqs/faq-aca22.html

incredible.   I bet nobody behind ACA thought that the IRS would 
interpret it this way.

Every document says what cannot be done - not one offers an example of 
what is allowed.

who has a solution ??   Fighting ACA is not one of them - there must be 
some cookie cutter solution for small biz - given that violations have a 
$100 per employee per day penalty ? Holy smokes.

ADP is not helpful.

what does everyone use to stay ahead of this ???

[WISPA] IMPORTANT: Department of Labor releases proposed FLSA overtime regulations



If you have salaried employees/employees who don’t get overtime after 40 hours, the Department of Labor finally released its new Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) regulations today. The official DOL notice and the FAQs are posted on the DOL website.

 

One thing is clear: the WHD’s proposed FLSA regulations will mean higher minimum salaries for exempt employees, even those who are highly compensated.  Everything else in the regulations will stay the same, at least for now.  However, the WHD has asked for comments on a number of topics, including the duties test and the inclusion of non-discretionary bonuses for purposes of the salary basis test.  Because these are proposed rules, nothing changes today, but the impact of these rules will be far reaching.  Employers should start planning now for the impact on their operations and finances, and consider participating in the public comment period with WHD. 

 

The new FLSA regulations set the salary threshold for exempt employees at $921 per week, but note that the final rule could increase that to $970 per week ($50,440 per year). Under the current rules implemented in 2004 by the Bush administration, salaried workers must earn only $23,660 per year in order to be eligible for most overtime exemptions. The duties test did not change yet, but the NPRM suggests that it will without further public comment.

[WISPA] "Internet access is not a necessity or human right"

What does everyone here think?

http://arstechnica.com/business/2015/06/internet-access-not-a-necessity-or-human-right-says-fcc-republican/

Federal Communications Commission member Michael O’Rielly yesterday argued that "Internet access is not a necessity or human right" and called this one of the most important "principles for regulators to consider as it relates to the Internet and our broadband economy."  O'Rielly, one of two Republicans on the Democratic-majority commission, outlined his views in a speech before the Internet Innovation Alliance, a coalition of businesses and nonprofits .

O'Rielly described five "governing principles" that regulators should rely on, including his argument that Internet access should not be considered a necessity. Here's what he said:

It is important to note that Internet access is not a necessity in the day-to-day lives of Americans and doesn’t even come close to the threshold to be considered a basic human right. I am not in any way trying to diminish the significance of the Internet in our daily lives. I recognized earlier how important it may be for individuals and society as a whole. But, people do a disservice by overstating its relevancy or stature in people’s lives. People can and do live without Internet access, and many lead very successful lives. Instead, the term “necessity” should be reserved to those items that humans cannot live without, such as food, shelter, and water.

It is even more ludicrous to compare Internet access to a basic human right. In fact, it is quite demeaning to do so in my opinion. Human rights are standards of behavior that are inherent in every human being. They are the core principles underpinning human interaction in society. These include liberty, due process or justice, and freedom of religious beliefs. I find little sympathy with efforts to try to equate Internet access with these higher, fundamental concepts. From a regulator’s perspective, it is important to recognize the difference between a necessity or a human right and goods such as access to the Internet. Avoiding the use of such rhetorical traps is wise.

[WISPA] Odd behavior with Netgear routers this week

Has anyone else been having issues with some netgear routers not making PPPoE connections?  We've had a number of these come up.  Power reset on router does not fix it.

[WISPA] Redneck Tower Site

Early morning Monday during a nasty storm we had 3 tower sites collapse. We had some winds close to 120 MPH. No tornado but there might as well have been. Our main site was the first to fall. Fortunately there was a 30 foot light pole close by to hold our AF24s, a few APs & some Back Hauls to other sites. I am hoping not to be doing this for real long, but I thought Id post a pic for some comedy relief
