FreePress : Verge of turning over our public Internet airwaves to the same giant phone and cable co

Help ensure Broadband for the Rest of Usâ“Itâ™s Good for Business

Imagine having a fast connection to an open Internet wherever you go, without needing a telephone wire or cable modem.

The FCC could make this happen. Instead theyâ™re on the verge of turning over our public Internet airwaves to the same giant phone and cable companies that control high-speed access for more than 96 percent of American users.

Donâ™t let the FCC give away our wireless Internet to these price-gouging giants. We need to use these public airwaves to connect more Americans to an open, neutral and affordable Internet.


The idea of using the existing TV spectrum for widely available broadband is tremendously exciting. As a business owner, I could see that this might spark a wave of creative entrepreneurship like the original dotcom boom a decade ago, and create useful technologies we can only dream of currently. Open access is the way to do this, not tight control by a handful of companies.
