The Federal Communications Commission won an important battle in a fight to free up more unlicensed wireless spectrum for Wi-Fi devices.
As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, it’s also the 25th anniversary of Headlines!
For a quarter century, we’ve provided the only free, reliable, and non-partisan daily digest that curates and distributes news about universal broadband, while connecting communications, democracy, and public interest issues. While newsletters are having a moment, we had to take ours to celebrate this milestone and our over 6,000 issues!
Tom Wheeler, former Chairman, Federal Communications Commission: "I LOVE your Daily Digest! Rely on it to keep informed."
Leon Wilson, Chief of Digital Innovation and Chief Information Officer, Cleveland Foundation: "Your daily digests are beneficial, in-depth and informative. The content and breadth that you all share and cover on a daily basis is short of remarkable. I am always walking away more informed and find myself saving/retaining darn near every single daily digest into a special inbox folder."
Eric Null, U.S. Policy Manager and Global Policy Counsel, Access Now: "Just wanted to give you a hearty THANK YOU for doing this in-some-ways-thankless work. I know my sentiment is felt throughout the space. We all appreciate you putting this list together daily and helping us all stay informed. It certainly makes my life much easier."

Researchers have found that salespeople offering free phone service through the California LifeLine Program often leave consumers in the dark about the trade-offs that come with it.
It is critical that policymakers think carefully about the BEAD Program's design to reduce the chances of repeating the mistakes of prior efforts to achieve universal service.
