Those of us super isolated in rural America are dependent upon access to the independent media centers through the facilities of extended wireless services as proposed via FCC docket 04-151. The FCC is to be commended for their work and support in bringing this proposal to it's present state and should be encouraged to resist reopening docket 04-151 which would likely result in a takeover by big corporate providers.
This plan will provide access to those of us in rural America who have no access at present. If this new frequency spectrum, 3650-3700 Mhz is turned over to the corporate interests, they are bound to make their choices based on profits while we remain in need of access to independent media.
Retaining a portion of wireless service for public use is an important cause needing immediate support as the FCC is considering reopening docket 04-151. If it is reopened, there is a significant chance that this new frequency spectrum, proposed to be put under the control of the public, will now be auctioned to the highest bidder as has been the rest of this public resource.
Please e-mail the FCC today via the link below providing easy e-mail instructions to include your comments. Please include in your comment: "Do not reopen docket number 04-151 which would open the door to corporate takeover of previously FCC agreed to rural wireless plan for this available spectrum."
