Two senators have introduced legislation that could result in the Federal Communications Commission opening up more spectrum for Wi-Fi and other public uses, but at the expense of spectrum dedicated to communications between intelligent vehicles. The bipartisan legislation is being called the Wi-Fi Innovation Act and was introduced by Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Cory Booker (D-NJ). The legislation directs the FCC to study the impact of opening up part of the 5 GHz band and to follow through with doing so should the commission find that it would be an improvement over its current use. The senators want the FCC to keep an eye toward whether opening the spectrum could allow Wi-Fi to bring internet access to low-income areas.
