Do you remember when the Government opened up a huge spectrum of the 5 Ghz band in 2003? It was a huge deal for the private sector, opening the door to some new WiFi technologies, but has anything happened since? We have been waiting for a report due in January 2005 submitted to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). Not to be confused with the Inter-American Telecommunication Commission (CITEL) that has recently been reconstituted according to the Whitehouse's new litmus test. Neither of these groups ought to be confused with the FCC, which is an independent group. The red tape is everywhere!
