new legislation that could disallow municipal wireless systems
in the US.
"The recently introduced U.S. Senate bill, called the Broadband Investment and
Consumer Choice Act of 2005, may spell the end for municipal wireless. Among
other things, the bill says that when there is a case of competing bids
between a private company and local government, preference will be given to
the private company. Richard Koman reports on the implications of this bill
and what it could mean for consumers long-term.
