Free the Airwaves: FCC votes 5-0 to Free the Airwaves

Here is the letter I got from Google today in regards to freeing up the tv airways!



We did it.

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.

Thank you for being one of the more than 20,000 who signed the Free the Airwaves petition to the FCC.  This historic vote would not have been possible without your effort.

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