Technet Backs TV White Spaces For Rural Broadband

TechNet, whose members include Amazon, Airbnb and AT&T, is supporting the use of a certain kind of unlicensed spectrum, known as TV White Spaces, to help bolster access to rural broadband, an effort that Microsoft has been championing. “TechNet is respectfully calling on the FCC to facilitate an environment in which unlicensed broadband technologies using low band spectrum (the so-called “TV white spaces”) can flourish,” the group writes in a letter to the FCC. “Taking this action, including preserving the availability of three 6 MHz-wide TV white space channels in every market across the country, will allow providers to make broadband more widely available and improve the lives of millions.”  Source: Politico Morning Tech
