Google’s “FreeTheAirwaves” campaign

Google has launched yet another publicity campaign. FreeTheAirwaves.com asks the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to carve out a piece of airwaves, called white spaces, for free public broadband use. According to Google, the FCC will finally make its determination on white spaces this fall. But I wouldn’t be surprised if the vote is delayed yet again, as it has been for more than a year, due to industry resistance and technology issues. Perhaps Google hopes the FreeTheAirwaves campaign will help move the needle. I am not so sure.
