Orlando, Fla. - FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski Tuesday brought his call for moving swiftly to
free up more wireless spectrum home to a roomful of big fans, the

the FCC hard to make that happen.

In his keynote speech, the chairman,
using a tablet as a teleprompter, said it was like Tomorrowland had been moved
from Disney World to the Orange County Convention Center. "Broadband is no
longer a luxury," he said, and unleashing spectrum is a national priority. The
broadband adoption rate is 67%, that is too low, he said, and the cost of the
U.S.'s competitiveness could be severe.
