free internet — too good to be true?

17 06 2006

Supposedly a company with some reputable and experienced people behind it is trying to get free Internet access to most Americans.  Here’s the news I’ve heard on it :

ISP-Planet is reporting that startup M2Z wants to offer 95% of America free wireless Internet access using the 20Mhz frequency allocation.  They’re backed by Kleiner Perkins, one of the most successful VC firms in history, and being started by the guy who built the @Home network and a former FCC Wireless Bureau Chief.  384/128 speeds will be free and they’ll sell the higher speeds and the government will get a kickback of the revenue.

Can they pull it off?  I really don’t know.  But I sure hope so!
