For quite some time, we've been saying that the FCC should stop its somewhat ad hoc method of dealing with spectrum issues and finally come out with a comprehensive spectrum allocation policy -- preferably one that creates a more open market for spectrum by letting the market decide what the spectrum is good for, rather than having the FCC just assign it. Of course, not much has been done, despite the administration announcing some bad ideas on spectrum allocation (basically: more bureaucracy) which have mostly been ignored, and now the US Chamber of Commerce is pushing for a more comprehensive spectrum policy as well, but it's unlikely to lead to very much.
