The FCC is working hard to make the national broadband plan that the President envisions a reality. To be able to serve the most people with fast speeds, wireless sis the best option for wireless broadband to people all around the country.

The FCC has announced that it has taken 90Mhz worth of spectrum that was used by mobile satellite service (MSS) and removed barriers that prevented it from being used for wireless broadband. The rule that prevented its use for broadband before stated that owners of the spectrum could only install terrestrial towers to support satellites.

Slingshot to launch pre-paid wireless Internet service

SlingshotThe last notebook I bought was a Dell XPS M1330. Part of the reason I opted for that machine was that I could get a Verizon wireless broadband modem inside the machine. The reason I wanted Verizon was that they would allow me to pay a day rate to use the wireless Internet service rather than paying $70 a month for something I would use a few times per year at most.

I have always wondered why if we can have pre-paid cellular phone service, we can’t have pre-paid wireless Internet? I guess I wasn’t the only who wondering about that, today Slingshot announced that it would be launching a wireless broadband pre-pay service in the US starting in June 2008.
