"Who do you think is getting this "freed up" spectrum, the airwaves which we the people theoretically own?"

Well youre free to bid on it.. Seriously though did you ever wonder what they 802.11 was on the front of a lynksys router for home use? its a chuck of that spectrum here is the problem that spectrum is limited and if not managed (like any other resource) it will run out thus crippling development of new technologies.

"How much are these multi-billion dollar corporations paying for our airwaves so that they can increase their profits?"

Many of these corporations provide products like cellphones, cordless phones, and routers ...

"Did YOU vote on it?"

No but I did not vote on the last forestry bill either we elect representatives to manage our resources
