Summary Box: FCC plans to nix wireless network

GOODBYE: Federal officials plan to kill a proposed national high-speed wireless network.

ABOUT THE NETWORK: It would have been a competitor to super-fast, fourth-generation wireless services being rolled out by AT&T, Verizon Wireless and others. It was seen as a way to make more airwaves available to feed consumers' appetites for movies, music and games on a variety of mobile devices.

WHY NIX IT?: A federal agency that coordinates wireless signals, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, concluded that it would in some cases jam personal-navigation and other GPS devices, and it saw no way to eliminate the risk.
