There is no way they can tax the existing unlicensed frequencies now. How will they regulate all the Linksys routers being sold at Circuit City? And cordless phones that operate in 900mhz, 2.4ghz and 5.8ghz.

Well, it does not surprise me that the government has decided to tax the unlicensed spectrum. Today the Bush administration announced a plan to tax Wi-Fi and other unlicensed spectrum. It is not clear how they will do it yet but the process is in motion. That's the bad news, the good news is they reached agreement on the 5.4 GHz spectrum and that should become available once equipment gets certified. Check the RCR news site for the full stories. Oh well, I suspected that it would not last forever the truly free use of
the spectrum.

Thank You,
