I came across the Consumer’s Union website – the not-for-profit organization that publishes Consumer Reports. Entitled www.hearusnow.org, the website delves into what is best for the consumer in regards to wireless and other issues related to telecom.
Well worth the read even if you don’t agree with some of their suggested courses of action. I particularly agree with their stance on allowing cities and counties to provide wireless high speed internet access over unlicensed spectrum without the major telcos stepping in to “protect” their licensed spectrum rights. See http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A23826-2004Nov30.html for more information on how Verizon has attempted to stop the city of Philadelphia from providing low cost WIFI access to its constituents.
