"The federal government wants to create super WiFi networks across the nation, so powerful and broad in reach that consumers could use them to make calls or surf the Internet without paying a cellphone bill every month."

While massive, free wifi would be awesome, I'd be more worried about the fact that the government would officially control the internet. At least for a large part of the developed world. Big brother, much?

That's it MJGrae, they're screaming about how everyone will get free wi-fi while quietly mentioning they'll be the ones who own the entire network.

If they are talking about allowing large mesh networks, I think that will be great!

I'm uneasy about public wi-fi networks, regardless of who owns them.

Don't use BIPS!
