Tell the FCC to free the airwaves!
Remember that fuzzy static between channels on old TVs? Today more than 75% of those airwaves, also called "white space" spectrum, are completely unused. This vast public resource could offer a revolution in wireless services of all kinds, including universal wireless Internet.
The FCC will soon decide whether to open this unused spectrum for general usage, and your voice matters -- a lot. So if you agree that freeing the white spaces represents a vote for the future of the Internet, please sign our petition and help spread the word about this campaign.
Please do it now: sign the petition and tell the FCC to do something to benefit the consumer -- rather than the telco monopoly -- for a change.
