The FCC has released long-awaited rules for the auction and use of 62 MHz of prime 700 MHz band spectrum that will be reclaimed when television broadcasters transition to digital service in 2009. The new rules outline an ambitious public/private partnership to create a nationwide interoperable broadband network for public safety, establish auction procedures and license sizes, and impose limited “open access” requirements on one license block.

FCC Commissioner Jonathan Adelstein told the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials International (APCO), meeting in Baltimore this week, that his preference was to have the U.S. government pay for a nationwide, interoperable public safety network. But advocates of such a network have been calling for one for years without it happening.

private corporations are taking over everything. we know where their loyalties lie.

I came upon the first link above (pillsbury) from rereading a post about facility security forces regarding Saudi Arabia and noticed this 03 link about State Law Limits on the Use of Deadly Force by Facility Security Forces Ah, the good ol' days Eh? Those laws are probably off the books now like in Iraq. Will we have private security forces allowed to kill w/impunity?
