FCC rules on Wi-Fi at Logan Airport
The FCC ruled yesterday that Logan International Airport cannot restrict the placement of Wi-Fi antennas in the airport. The ruling was in response to a complaint by Continental Airlines. In interpreting the Over the Air Reception Devices Rule, the FCC Commissioner states "...it enables American consumers and businesses to offer and receive broadband services at the most local levels – at any time, in any place."
