I’ve also read that the House bill bars the FCC from paying for spectrum and then opening it up for unlicensed use. Can you comment on that?
I was the guy who created the idea of unlicensed spectrum. Several technologists and economists came to me and said that we need spectrum for short hops between computers and cable connections. That technology became known as Wi-Fi and it completely transformed the Internet experience, as everybody who has a computer knows.
