Free Press Pleased with FCC White Spaces Proposal
WASHINGTON - September 3 - Yesterday the Federal Communications Commission released its proposed agenda for its next public meeting, slated for Sept. 23. The agenda includes items on wireless use of TV white spaces, an order to streamline the E-Rate program improving connectivity for students and library patrons and efforts to improve E911 location accuracy and build a more effective emergency response system.
Free Press Political Adviser Joel Kelsey made the following statement:
"We are pleased the Commission is moving toward finalizing the order on white spaces. This is a step forward for wireless communications, and we are excited about the potential for innovation in what is now a concentrated, consolidated wireless environment."
"We look forward to the FCC continuing to vote on additional policies that will promote competition and protect consumers, like Net Neutrality rules and the Third Way proposal establishing a new legal framework for broadband policy."
