More From WSJ's Wanna-Be FCC Commissioners

We remain fascinated by the focus of the Wall Sreet Journal's editorial board on the arcane world of telecom regulatory policy. The omniscient editors have never been shy about pontificating about things they clearly know little about.

Today's WSJ editorial page carries an editorial about Sprint's announcement this week that it plans to build a multi-billion dollar WiMAX network over the next several years. According to the closet FCC commissioners at the Journal this announcement solves virtually every major policy debate now happening in DC because "high-speed wireless Internet access, however, means no more duopoly." As a result, there is no more duopoly (according to the Journal) and therefore is no need for any "net-neutrality" guarantees, no need to regulate broadband in any way, and no need to regulate access the last mile.

Gosh, that was so easy!
