Copps Wants to Consider Proposals

"New approaches to getting wider distribution of wireless broadband and emergency communications deserve a look, but should also raise some concern at the FCC, says one commissioner. The effort by Morgan O'Brien's new company Cyren Call to get 30 MHz of space in the 700 MHz broadcast band set aside for public safety applications, as well as a new venture headed by former FCC wireless bureau chief John Muleta to offer free nationwide wireless broadband services using 2155-2175 MHz spectrum in exchange for giving 5 percent of its gross revenues to the U.S. Treasury, deserve the FCC's deliberations, said FCC Commissioner Michael Copps during a press briefing today."
