Submission + - First public white spaces network is alive (networkworld.com)

An anonymous reader writes: The first public white spaces network officially launched on Wednesday in Claudville, Virginia. It uses sensing technology from Spectrum Bridge with software and Web cams supplied by Microsoft and PCs from by Dell. The project was funded the TDF Foundation. White spaces networks use unlicensed television spectrum and have been called Wifi on steroids. They offer more bandwidth over larger areas than Wifi. IT companies duked it out with broadcasters for years to get white spaces approved by the FCC. They finally got the FCC's nod in November, 2008.
