ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the decision of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to change the 700MHz band plan and service regulations to allow for a portion of the spectrum to have open access that is a nationwide interoperable broadband network not controlled by a single telecommunications carrier. Technology industry companies, led by Google, have joined together in recent months to lobby the commission to set aside a part of the 700MHz spectrum in the auction for open public use.
