The Federal Communications Commission is considering making free WiFi networks available across the country.
The FCC Commissioner suggests using spectrum from empty TV channels for a super WiFi, making Internet access free like broadcast television access.
Some south Georgia users say it sounds like a good idea, but it could face opposition from companies that make money from wi-fi. Smelvin Ali was using WiFi at Elements Coffee Shop. He said, "Probably a lot of Internet companies will lose a lot of money and businesses like coffee shops."
Of course, the FCC only allocates airwaves. Someone else would have to build the networks.
