Federal Communications Commission Proposes to Offer Free WiFi Access to the U.S. Public

Five Star Equities Provides Stock Research on Frontier Communications and Windstream

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/06/13 -- A recently proposal from the Federal Communications Commission to provide the U.S. public free access to WiFi could become a major obstacle for the $178 billion wireless industry. "For a casual user of the Web, perhaps this could replace carrier service," said Medley Global Advisors analyst, Jeffrey Silva. "Because it is more plentiful and there is no price tag, it could have a real appeal to some people." Five Star Equities examines the outlook for companies in the Telecom Industry and provides equity research on Frontier Communications Corp. (NASDAQ: FTR) and Windstream Corp. (NASDAQ: WIN).

The Washington Post has recently reported that the FCC has proposed the idea of creating super WiFi networks around the U.S., which would allow the public to make cellphone calls or surf the Internet free of charge. The FCC's plan has been in discussion for years but gained traction after endorsements from Google and Microsoft. The companies believe that easy access to free public WiFi would spur "millions of devices that will compose the coming Internet of things". If approved, it would still take several years before the FCC's proposal would be in full effect.
