FCC Approves ‘White Spaces’ for Unlicensed Mobile Broadband

Sep 23, 2010  •  Post A Comment

The Federal Communications Commission has given the OK to mobile broadband use of unlicensed broadcast airwaves, known as "white spaces," The Washington Post reports.

The agency apparently hopes the plan will lead to better connections for mobile devices. The panel voted unanimously to allow the use of the unused channels between TV channels for mobile broadband services.

Google, Microsoft and other companies have been campaigning for such use of the spectrum. Broadcasters and others have complained that such use of the spectrum could cause interference with TV broadcasts and wireless microphones.


  1. This development sounds like it could lead to the institutionalisation of massive public wifi networks. Is this the beginning of the end of cable/dsl/fios home wifi networks?
