Wireless Net Neurtality and the FCC Airwaves Auction
By: Mark W Adams


Matt Stoller is "very excited."
This is very exciting news.  John Edwards is the first Presidential candidate to ask the FCC to unlock the incredible block of spectrum coming open in the next few years.  It's a bit complicated, as telecom stuff always is, but basically you have a huge slice of the public airwaves coming free, and the FCC must decide how it's going to be auctioned off.  Because the legislation freeing the spectrum was a budget bill, the auction must bring in a certain amount of money, so just making the spectrum open and free isn't an option.
As they say, read it all, including Edwards' Full Statement on net neutrality and the future of the InterToobz.



For some more background on the issue, take a look at Stoller's post from yesterday.
