FCC Approves Plan To Increase Wi-Fi Access
Originally published on Mon July 14, 2014 3:58 pm
The Federal Communications Commission has approved a plan to spend $2 billion to increase wireless service in schools and libraries across the country.
FCC chairman Tom Wheeler said at a hearing last week that because of the plan, “ten million kids will be connected next year who otherwise wouldn’t.”
Not all find the plan beneficial. There is controversy from some Republicans who oppose the plan, saying that this will lead to an increase in phone bills for some Americans.
