The FCC has formed a Spectrum Task Force, and is seeking public comment through June 8. This process will eventually lead to workshops, a report and proposed changes in FCC rules. FCC officials have told me they are very interested in new technologies such as WiFi and ultra-wideband. They are willing to consider policies that foster open spectrum. But public input is essential. There must be a constituency for unlicensed wireless to counter the established carriers. Tell the FCC that establishing a spectrum commons is the best way to promote innovation and ubiquitous broadband!
