FTFA: T-Mobile has fought FCC Chairman Kevin Martin's proposal to encourage development of free Web access by raising concerns that the service would disrupt the company's 3G wireless network, for which it charges customers.

Farking T-Mobile. Their service sucks a footlong anyway. I say let 'em go down.

Free anything in this country, especially involving telephone companies or the FCC, is a pipe dream.
