FCC Moving to Block State Broadband Laws
I am not certain, but do assume that there will be a wireless component if the system is not entirely wireless. Hence, another layer of wireless radiation over our towns should this law not be overturned on appeal. And please understand, I do not oppose the right to compete with the Big Telecom companies, per se. Rather, I oppose every company deploying its own antennae infrastructure so that they may broadcasting freely. In this case even municipalities. [Barring the ideal solution of bringing all the towers down, could the corporations somehow share the existing antennae as they did the phonelines in the US after the break up of Ma Bell? Why does every provider need its own antennae? Colocation of antennae on existing towers is surely worse for those life-forms nearby. And does the volume go up with different providers entering the neighborhood--I refuse to call it a Market--so that the existing antennae could not accommodate it? I think the volume is only going up with the development of more and more wireless devices. So much for conserving energy, eh?
