FCC Moving Forward with Spectrum Reallocation Plan
The Federal Communications Commission is more seriously considering reclaiming certain bands of spectrum from television broadcasters and making it available to entities willing and able to operate wireless broadband networks. The spectrum reallocation effort will be bundled into the FCC's larger broadband plan, which must be submitted to Congress in February 2010. The FCC will likely push for the freed up spectrum to be used to offer free wireless broadband services. The proposition is sure to be met with opposition from television broadcasters and others looking to keep wireless spectrum licensed and not free.
