You say you want a revolution…

chris/ May 29, 2007

I just learned about an important issue and signed a petition about it. The federal government is on the verge of turning over a huge portion of our public airwaves to companies like AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast, who will use them for private enrichment instead of the public good.

These newly available airwaves are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to revolutionize Internet access, beaming high-speed signals to every park bench, coffee shop, workplace, and home in America. Phone and cable companies don’t want this competition to their Internet services; they’d rather purchase the airwaves at auction and sit on them.

You can sign the petition I signed here—urging the government to make sure the public airwaves are used for the public good:
