FCC seen backing airline’s broadband at Loganpdf

Boston airport authorities cannot stop Continental Airlines from offering wireless Internet service in its frequent flier lounge under a proposed Federal Communications Commission ruling, sources familiar with the matter told Reuters on Wednesday.

[…] FCC Chairman Kevin Martin has proposed backing Continental’s request, said the sources, who include telecommunications lawyers.

The proposed ruling favoring Continental has been sent to the four other FCC commissioners for a vote, the sources said. Martin would have to win the support of at least two commissioners for it to pass.
