The article focuses on the proposal of the three mayors in the San Francisco Bay Area in California to change the 700 MHz broadband spectrum lease arrangement so that the airwave rights are held by the three cities. A 700 MHz waiver was granted by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to enable the deployment of the BayWEB network. Alameda County Sheriff Gregory Ahern has decided to have the three cities listed as the holders of the spectrum lease to resolve the issue.
