The FCC is expected to take up the issue of a free wireless Internet service, must-carry rules, and other pending issues in December, the last meeting in which Republicans will be in control. The wireless Internet issue has been the most visible of the group to be discussed. The industry clearly doesn’t like free Internet no matter how it’s obtained, and privacy advocates are objecting to the proposal that the sites filter traffic to eliminate adult material. It’s still not clear how all of this would be funded, so the wisdom of reserving spectrum for it eludes us.
