FCC Gives Green Light on White Spaces for "Super Wi-Fi"

The five members of the FCC voted unanimously today to open up white spaces–unused airwaves between TV stations–to deliver “super Wi-Fi” with the ability to penetrate walls, leap tall buildings and deliver much greater range at higher speeds than Wi-Fi as we know it now. Development in the arena is expected to drive billions of dollars of investment by industry leaders who have been chomping at the bit since the agency first voted to allow the use of white space in 2008, when opposition from TV broadcasters held the plan back.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
