Wireless Bill: Too Much Too Soon?

Two Senators are going to introduce a bill next year to release a wide swath of spectrum, but some are saying the bill may never get off the ground. People who still fear problems with spectrum interference are scared that the new open spectrum would interfere with spectrum used by the Department of Defense. Others seem to be complaining that the bill would release “too much” spectrum – as if there’s a limit on how much can be released at once. It seems pretty clear that the folks who came up with the bill didn’t come up with the numbers on a whim, and opening up the spectrum certainly could create some new and innovative uses – especially in the wifi world.
