Massport trying to shut down Continental’s free WiFi service at Logan

Massport (Massachusetts Port Authority) is trying to stop Continental from offering free WiFi service to its President’s Club members by invoking security and interference issues, according to a recent WiFiNetNews report.
Glenn points out the issue here remains if municipalities and individual landlords have the right to restrict privileges to unlicensed spectrum.
What’s amusing here is the fact that this IS an unlicensed band. Believe it or not, Continental has all the right in the world to not have to use the T-Mobile service and put up their own. Security and interference are irrelevant in unlicensed spectrum. What Massport is doing can be analogous to going to a national park and bringing water, to find that the Park Ranger confiscates yours to sell you some.
