How about you can own part of the internet if you promise free service and no pornography. Sound good? That’s the deal the FCC is considering making with communications regulators over an unused piece of the 25 megahertz wireless spectrum (which, come to think of it, is sort of like the new media version of Bush’s health care policies in Africa). The winning bidder would then get to use the rest of the airwaves for commercial services.
As of yet, there are no takers, not it seems because anyone is especially wary of censorship issues, but because the winner would have to “to serve 50 percent of the U.S. population within four years.”
