FCC Sells Air

ABC News writes about the FCC spectrum auction and what it might mean for the future of wireless. The article notes "more available spectrum, also called bandwidth, means that companies that provide wireless services, such as cell phones, can offer more features than simple telephone service." Marina Amoroso at the Yankee Group said, "If you've got a wider street, traffic can go more quickly."

Rob Enderle added, "It may not change the cell phone in your pocket. But it could make a difference in regards to what you carry in your pocket at some future date."
