Will the FCCs proposal for free public WiFi ever be implemented?
stylor 1 year ago
The FCC just proposed that free public WiFi networks be established in cities across the US. My initial reaction to reading that was, "Oh, yeah!" My follow-up reaction a few seconds later was, "Yeah, right."
As with most things, the devil's in the details, and it looks there are a lot of blanks to be filled in for the FCC's proposal to come to fruition. There will need to be spectrum acquisitions, and that's just one. On the upside, both Google and Microsoft have given their support to the proposal, so it is apparently being taken seriously.
Will this ever happen? Or is this just another flying car of the future?
