A broadband provider from FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s hometown says one of his latest plans could prevent it from purchasing spectrum needed to bolster its network.

Wave Wireless is a locally owned and operated home Internet provider in Parsons, Kansas, where Pai grew up. Last year, Pai met with Wave’s owner and wrote in a tweet that Wave is “connecting Parsons (including my parents) & smaller towns nearby.”

Pai heard from his hometown ISP again yesterday when Wave and 181 other fixed wireless broadband providers wrote a letter opposing an FCC plan that could limit the small ISPs’ access to wireless spectrum.
