Diverse Coalition Fights FCC Plan To Sell Wireless Airwaves

If all goes according to plan, sometime next year the Federal Communications Commission will auction off a chunk of the airwaves to wireless carriers. It promises to provide greatly improved service for smartphones and other wireless devices, as well as raise billions of dollars for the federal government. The auction could also create serious problems for businesses which depend on wireless microphones and intercoms, like professional football, mega-churches and Broadway.
