The article reports on the proposal presented by M2Z Networks to the U.S. Federal Communications Commission to build a nationwide wireless broadband network that will offer free service to consumers. T-Mobile said that building a network in the band which is adjacent to its own spectrum will create interference with its current services. According to M2Z, T-Mobile is using the same spectrum in the Czech Republic in a similar way as in the U.S. It claims that a free wireless broadband service offers unique public interest benefits.
