The author comments on the efforts of Google and wireless networks drivers to persuade the U.S. Federal Communications Commission to force licensees for 22 MHz in the 700 MHz band auction to connect any applications to their networks. He argues that open access to wireless networks should be beyond monopoly. He says that consumers should be the one who must decide on what standards should be used for mobile Internet applications.
