Application of the Principles to Mobile Broadband

Don't let commercial interests make a grab for WIFI frequencies

WIFI should remain open, especially in public spaces, because it was meant for information infrastructure, not to be used as an income source for cable and phone companies.

 

Cable and phone companies have been preventing municipalities all around the country from putting up big public wifi systems through lobbying. they instead have been putting up their own garden walled wifi networks that require users to be a subscriber to their services...

 

we must not let this continue. if a municipality wants to build a wifi network, they should not be stopped by the phone company in the legislature.

 

We must stop these companies from putting up their own toll booths on our public wifi frequencies, thus limiting neutral access to the network.
