Free The Airwaves

Posted by Umair Abbasi on Sept. 5, 2008 in Technology

Have you always found yourself sitting on the sidelines during those ‘Oh My God’ moments going man I wish I was part of that. Ladies and Gentlemen this is one of those deals. Even though the world will never know you were part of the movement, maybe you don’t care, maybe you do, but the right thing to do is watch the video on their site, and make your own decision whether to sign the petition or not.

All I have to say is, if rivals like Google and Microsoft can come together on this agenda then why can’t we support it.
Practice your freedom of choice.


11/12/08  Thank you to everyone who signed the petition and became part of the next big thing.

“FCC votes to Free the Airwaves

On November 4, 2008, by a vote of 5-0, the Federal Communications Commission agreed to free the unused TV airwaves for unlicensed public use.

This is a tremendous victory for Internet users.

Thanks and congratulations to the more than 20,000 of you who signed the Free the Airwaves petition to the FCC. This historic vote would not have been possible without your effort.

And thanks to the Commission for showing great leadership on this issue.”
