Submission + - Verisign trying to wheedle out of Open Access rule (scrawford.net)

quarterbuck writes: "Verisign earlier this year won the Spectrum auction for 700Mhz transmissions while agreeing to provide open access to all users wanted to connect to its network. Professor Susan Crawford of University of Michigan/ Yale is saying that they are now saying No! to open access . Using a loophole in the rulebook, they are going to choke the access to non-verisign phones. Google had earlier promised a minimum bid of 4.6 billion just to keep the spectrum open ."
