It sounds like they acknowledge that there will be an auction, and are talking about constraints on that auction and use of the spectrum after it occurs. For example they wish to protect "the consumer’s right to use any equipment, content, application or service on a non-discriminatory basis" -- like a wireless Carterfone + end-to-end rule. Is such a rule within the FCC purview? Can't one support both their proposal and license-free white space?

  • About Steve Stroh

    In 1996, I was fascinated to discover that providing Internet Access via license-exempt wireless technologies was not only possible, but being done routinely by a small band of pioneering Internet Service Providers.

    By mid-1997, I was writing professionally about Broadband Wireless Internet Access (BWIA) as a monthly columnist in Boardwatch Magazine.

    In 2000, I began writing about BWIA full time in my own blogs, for numerous other publications, and my own subscription newsletter.

    From 2008 - 2015, I took a hiatus from writing about BWIA, but my interest in BWIA did not wane. From 2016 - 2020 I worked to resume writing full time.
