Free The Airwaves Targets TV White Spaces

Google has launched a new "Free The Airwaves"

initiative to build public support for a new federal spectrum policy favoring open access to TV "white spaces. This fall, the FCC is expected to decide whether to make this spectrum available for anyone to use.

Google argues that opening up the vast unused portion of spectrum "will enable a new generation of innovation and competition from which consumers -- especially those to whom the white spaces could soon deliver high-speed online access -- should benefit tremendously, both from a wealth of new products and services and from far lower cell phone and Internet access bills."http://www.freetheairwaves.com
