Wi-Fi via White Spaces
Posted on: 08/19/2009 02:00 AM

The 802.11 spec that now features the 5Ghz band (N) went official in 2008 for consumers. However, it was only a marginal step from the previous 2.4Ghz band that was introduced 8+ years ago. With all the Television stations migrating from analog to HD. There are alot of unused band space auctioned off by the FCC and available for use. That use can be "Data". 500 - 600mhz open space can be used for longer back haul of municipal networks. WiMax could be a thing of the past if this becomes official.

Check out the blurb here.
