How great is this: the FCC meeting that was scheduled to take place this week where they’d discuss the plans for free nationwide Wi-Fi isn’t even going to happen. The meeting, which was supposed to occur on the Dec. 18, was killed because a bunch of congressman objected to any “controversial” items emerging from the FCC during the last day’s of George W. Bush’s presidency. Better to let the new congress and Obama-influenced FCC tackle the matter.
Kevin Martin, the FCC chair, wants the nationwide Wi-Fi network to be be pornography-free (yeah, that’ll happen; the Internet is for porn), dontcha know?
In any event, it’s best to look at this latest development as merely a postponement and not an outright killing of the plan.
Next year, then.
