The FCC Starts Making Wicked Sense

By Deane Barker on July 10, 2007

New rules could rock wireless world: I could obviously not work for any wireless company since this just makes sense to me on its face.

Coming soon could be a wireless broadband world in which consumers get to pick any smartphone or other device and load any software on it — not have to take what the wireless carrier wants to sell.

That’s the goal of Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin Martin, who will propose sweeping new rules for wireless airwaves the government is auctioning early next year.
