FCC Moves to Reserve Free Wireless Waves

The Federal Communications Commission says it will move forward with plans to reserve valuable empty U.S. airwave spectrum for free wireless Internet use. The move is opposed by large corporate carriers such as T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and AT&T, which say their customers will experience interference from users of the new spectrum. A report released Friday by FCC engineers, however, disputes that, saying field tests showed little interference.
