Not So Super WiFi
Recently Nate Wooley who blogs for Motley Fool published an article (World Wide Wireless and Worried Telecoms) drawing the seemingly logical conclusion that big telecom companies such as AT&T and Verizon have something to fear from an FCC proposed “Super WiFi” system that he inferred would make broadband Internet access ubiquitous and free. In fact, the major wireless carriers are the most likely operators and beneficiaries of any national “Super WiFi” systems, which the carriers will only make available to subscribers for a monthly fee.
