Free WiFiPosted: February 5, 2013
How would you like FREE wifi that’s more powerful than any available now…able to get through concrete walls and clear hills and trees? You would? Then you obviously aren’t a wireless carrier! For the rest of us, a proposal from the FCC sounds almost too good to be true. They are talking about buying back unused television spectrum from TV broadcasters, and building free WiFi out in virtually every metro area and most rural areas. This would be a boon to cities, schools, people traveling…again- everyone but the wireless providers…who wouldn’t be able to sell their lesser coverage to us when we could get something better for free. Expect a big fight from them, but on our side and the government’s…Google and Microsoft have already weighed in.
