F.C.C. Expected to Extend Satellite Operators' Reach
Last month we had a story about the fight between wireless carriers and satellite phone carriers over whether or not the satellite carriers would be be able to augment their service with land based cellular service. The wireless carriers have been fighting against it, saying it would open up unfair competition, but the NY Times is reporting that the FCC is likely to approve such things this week. Of course, it’s likely (depending on all the legalese) that this will be protested and contested and it will all end up in court for many years anyway.
