FCC to M2Z: forgeddaboutit!

We have earlier noted the longstanding efforts of M2Z to obtain free spectrum in return for a nationwide free wi-fi service. According to The Register the FCC has finally pulled the plug on the deal, announcing that the desired unused AWS-3 spectrum will be auctioned off towards the middle of next year.

In The Register’s opinion this “scuppers” any chance of a nationwide free wireless IP network.
