Startup thwarted from providing free broadband
The Washington Post reports that a startup called M2Z Networks has been trying to create a means to blanket the nation with free broadband. Finally nearing the end of a 3-year struggle to implement the plan, they were thwarted by opposition including wireless carriers and the Bush Administration. Apparently, the Democrats are trying to delay a planed vote by the FCC on remaining spectrum until the new administration takes control. The theory being that Obama actually uses technology and presumably understands how it would value our country.
