Earlier this week, Federal Communications Chairman Julius Genachowski announced that the FCC would be increasing the amount of unlicensed spectrum available for Wi-Fi internet networks.
Without getting too bogged down in all the scientific details, this means that next time you're at the airport or at a conference, the wireless internet (hopefully!) will be faster.
I've attended a lot of political and tech conferences over the past few years, and this has been such a frequent - and frustrating - problem. Gather a bunch of bloggers in a room, with all of us trying to access the wireless network at the same time with laptops and iPads and cell phones, and...everything...slows...to...a...crawl...
This is good news for everyone going to CPAC!
