FCC Auction Opens Door to Open Access

FCC Auction Opens Door to Open Access

While the identity of the high bidder for the C block remains a mystery under the FCCs rules, it now appears certain the nation will see its very first open-access wireless network within a few years. Until now, the FCC has always allowed licensees to exercise full control over which phones and applications could be used on their networks. Indeed, three of the five blocks being auctioned this time around will allow the owners traditional discretion over their networks.

This could be interesting.
