Federal Communications Chairman Kevin Martin recently made comments about the future of the broadband industry. Among his statements were several regarding free access to wireless broadband services. Martin said that he would like 25% of the upcoming AWS-3 spectrum, set to be auctioned next year, to be reserved for free wireless broadband. Martin is hoping to see greater adoption of broadband in rural areas in the U.S. Martin sees broadband access as a fundamental service that all Americans should enjoy.

As a salesman in the wireless industry, I'd say the above parties would not be interested in...
Latency issues will be hilarious! and welfare checks will go to shotty laptops and psp's... haha just another nail in the coffin...
how about instead of free broadband, they offer free dial up?

Just who is gonna pay for this?

..because it wont be the carriers. Broadband infrastructure is expensive to deploy. Broadband is something everyone should enjoy for free? Heres a slogan: "America: Where basic health care is a privlidge but broadband is a right!".
😁 LMAO Thats awesome...i feel the same way make health care free people should pay for wireless broadband its the only way the carriers can keep enhancing their service and make it much faster
