Frontline Wireless, a high-profile startup that had hoped to bid on spectrum in the FCC's upcoming auction to build a public-private network for public-safety communications, has closed its operations. Co-founded by former FCC Chairman Reed Hundt, Frontline failed to raise adequate funding to finance its participation. The shutdown could put a dent in the FCC's agenda of building a reliable network for public-safety communications, according to industry analysis.
