Hanging Curve Ball for the FCC


All the feds have to do is knock this one out of the park to prove they are not hopeless telco shills. Continental Airlines wants to give wi-fi access away at Boston's Logan airport. But the airport authority wants to charge $7.95 a day for the same thing and so is making up all kinds of stuff about Continental's wi-fi being a security threat of some sort.

My guess is if the airport has some big Bell company partner, and this arrangement exists in other cities too, the FCC will find a way to make it illegal to "give away" wi-fi at airports and blather something about markets in the process.

Way, way too involved instructions on how to tell the FCC how you feel about the issue here.
