Tell the FCC: Save Our Public Airwaves
The FCC is on the verge of turning over a large chunk of the public airwaves to the same giant phone and cable companies that control high-speed Internet access for more than 96 percent of connected American homes. This public “spectrum” could revolutionize the Internet in America. Its wireless signal passes through concrete buildings and over mountains; it can connect tens of million of Americans who are being passed over by Internet providers like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast. Don’t let the FCC give away our wireless Internet to these price-gouging giants. The FCC deadline is fast approaching. Act now! Tell the FCC: Use Our Airwaves for the Public Good.
