FCC opens up unused TV signals for broadband

The Federal Communications Commission is opening up unused airwaves between television stations for wireless broadband networks that will be more powerful and can travel farther than today’s Wi-Fi hotspots.

The five-member FCC voted unanimously Thursday to allow the use of so-called “white spaces” between TV stations to deliver broadband connections that can function like Wi-Fi networks on steroids. The agency is calling the new technology “super Wi-Fi” and hopes to see devices with the new technology start to appear within a year.

Although the commission first voted to allow the use of white spaces for broadband nearly two years ago, Thursday’s vote resolves several critical technical details to ensure that the new technology does not interfere with TV signals or wireless microphones.
