A few years ago, we wrote about how the open communication space would transform the way we communicate.
But it seems like we’ve had to wait for a lot of that technology to arrive in the US.
Now it’s here.
This year, the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced a $100 million program to bring Wi-fi to the frontier: a wireless network that’s up to 10 times faster than any other in the world.
It’s called Frontier Communications, and it’s designed to make the US the first country to offer free Wi in the middle of a city, and to let you use it to access content that’s only available through the internet.
But Frontier isn’t the only one looking to open communication to more people.
Earlier this month, a new wireless network was launched by the UK government.
Called Open Access, it lets you access the internet and apps from anywhere in the UK and Europe, at speeds of up to 60 megabits per second.
But Open Access doesn’t just let you access content, it also lets you share your data.
Open Access also works with Facebook, Twitter, and Google, and offers an SDK to help companies use it in their own apps.
So if you’re using Open Access in your home, you’ll be able to share all your content with friends.
You’ll also be able browse and search the web and social networks without having to download any data.
If you’re a company that wants to connect to Open Access’s wider ecosystem, you can sign up here to get your free service.
Frontier has also announced a new service that lets you use Open Access to connect with other Frontier users in a variety of ways, including to help you track your data usage and improve your privacy.
And Frontier says it’s also working with companies to make sure that Frontier customers can connect to other Frontier customers’ networks, and can keep all the data that’s stored on their network.
The company is also testing a new kind of device that’s designed specifically to work with Open Access: a remote desktop app.
If that sounds like a little novelty, you’d be right.
But for the average consumer, the benefits of Open Access are clear: faster speeds and less data usage.
It’ll be up to you to decide if it’s something you want to use, or if you just want to connect and keep your data on Frontier.
