This thread is to assist people in understanding how things really work.

As usual the mods may move or delete the thread, but under the topic of Posse Comitatus and the subject matter
listed this post falls of ATS guidelines.

1) The unconstitutional domestic surveillance of the NSA.

So with that said, some of the things I post are not up for disscussion or debate.
They are facts, believe them or not.

The first fact, many can not even wrap their mind around much less believe..
1. NO ONE has EVER heard a real voice over a phone!

Your phone is not two cans and a string, there are many pieces of equipment between you and where you are calling starting with yor phone.
When you speak into a phone your voice and all backround noise is converted into a signal and transmitted down the lines to the phone of who you are talking to and converted back to sound. What you hear is not the real voice but a reproduction of the voice through a signal. The signal was in analog, today it is digital.
Yes you did hear your mothers voice but iit was a digiial reproduction.

THe next fact deals with bandwidth and the illusion of faster.
To explain this in laymans terms, you are going to a venue to see a major event. The venue holds 10,000 people.
The crowd is building, door # 1 opens and people file in, your in the middle of the line, the line appears to be moving slow, but now doors # 2 # 3 # 4 # 5 open up . You decide to stay in line # 1, because it really is not moving any faster. By opening more doors or increasing bandwidth you are creating the illusion of faster when all it is is increasing the volume. The simple fact that the speed of line one does not increase proves it is not speed but volume.
Anyone can have more bandwidth but it depends on two things 1. what can your local provider deliver to you and 2.
how much can you afford.

Explain this again, because I don't understand, this is a lesson in how a phone works and something about standing in line for bandwiths?

All Cell phones go through the system as does wifi and sat.
EVERYTHING ties in and everthing can be accessed.
Cell sites tie directly into the system.
Sat. tie into the system because the signal is sent from earth to the sat.and the signal bounces of the sat. and returns to earth .

Access to phone lines has never been a problem for law enforcement.
Flashing a badge and I.D. is all it takes
In the early days of telcom most calls required an operator and another operator for long distance.
The operators had a head set with seperate head phones and a mouth piece.
The mouth piece can be turned off at any time and the operator can listen in undetected.
So a law enforcement officer could access a line to who is suspect and listen in, through an operater.
The phone man that comes to your house has a test set it is an all in one unit it clips on to a phone line at an access point. This test set can listen in and make and recieve calls.
These test sets can be bought at your local Granger they are not cheap.The public has free access to this tool.

LAN or Local Area Network

LAN is a short distance data communication network typically within a building or campus.
IE. a college , business, a hall, F.D. public utilitys,military bases, THE HOUSE, THE SENATE, THE WHITE HOUSE,the stock exchange, BANKS , on and on.
What all these LANS have in common is ,thay can have a gateway or bridge to public telecommunications networks.
Anyone who has a LAN network at work knows this if they work at home and access the system.
This is what hackers do and it is against federal law to access a LAN network with out proper consent.
Law enforcement has easy and unrestricted access.
Any and all systems record Who, where and when a system is entered.
It doesn't take a genius to figure out why hackers use laptops and wifi.

1G, 2G, 3G, 4.

The G stands for ,generation.

1G was the first generation in cell Phones wireless technology.
Which was a analog signal.
1G spead was 28 k bits to 56 k bits, meaning down load speed was from 2.9 K BYTES to 5.6 K BYTES per second.
Which ment you could make and recieve calls and thats all.

2G was the second generation.
The big step up was from analog to digital. all that was added was texting


A minimum data rate for 3G is 2 M bit/s for stationary or walking users, and 384 k bit/s in a moving vehicle. Some of the new add ons were:
mobile TV
video on demand
video conferencing

A 4G system provides mobile ultra-broadband Internet access, for example to laptops with USB wireless modems, to smartphones, and to other mobile devices. Conceivable applications include amended mobile web access, IP telephony, gaming services, high-definition mobile TV, video conferencing, 3D television and cloud computing.

does not exist yet it is still a theory on paper.

What I am disscussing is not top secret it is basic information that is knowledge that is available to the public.
I wil not give the name of telco companies or names of companies that produce equipment nor any access codeso or commands.
Every piece of equipment has an access code and address just like every phone ( land line), cell phone, pad, computer and All mobile units also have a GPS unit (chip)

When anything is built electroniclly, it needs to have an access point for programming for your product to work.
The access point is also for testing and repairing and upgrading and general maintance (see owners manual)
Every phone company has their own address code within their portion of the network for their equipment which is changed from the factory. The data records are recorded and stored. The records have every address from the city to the building to the company name,to the type of equipment used by your phone Co. to the address of the piece of equipment you are using which has your name address, phone number , and electronic pin # and your GPS location. This is how they provoide you with a bill every month.

The big major changes occured in the late 70's and early 80's.
All the changes were per the U.S. government through it's many agencies FCC, PUC and others.
Changes included putting all arial cables under ground. I did this as a lineman.
Another big change was to upgrade all analog equipment to digital. I did this as a central office installer.
Another change was to replace all outside copper cable to fiber optic.

With modernization came the reduction of equipment and space.
A warehouse size of space for equipment was reduced to a small section in the corner.
The size of copper cables was reduced from 10 to 12 in. around ,to fiber the size of a regular size hot dog and doubled the volume.

With all the upgrading that eliminated jobs, nice !

The phone companys saw what was coming so...........
Instead of just ending up as dial tone companys they decided to open up their empty office space to small competitors. They lease them office space for their equipment and lease them cable and access to the network.Of course if that company suceeds they get bought up. Leasing out fiber cables is a lot cheaper than dig up the ground and running new fiber. Besides the big companys already own the right of ways.
Welcome to the new age of communications !
