+ - TV White Space 802.22 Wireless Broadband Trial in UK are a Success->

Submitted by

Mark.JUK writes "A major multinational and ten month long trial of new 'White Space' technology (IEEE 802.22) in the United Kingdom, which uses the spare radio spectrum that exists between Digital Terrestrial TV (DTV) channels to deliver wireless internet access services over a wide area, has officially completed today and been deemed "successful". The technology, if approved, could one day help to bring faster broadband services to both isolated rural and urban areas.

The TV White Spaces Consortium, which comprises 17 international and UK technology and media companies (BT, Microsoft, BBC, Alcatel-Lucent etc.), has now recommended that the UK regulator, Ofcom, complete its development of the “enabling regulatory framework” (i.e. Draft Statutory Instrument) in a “manner that protects licensees” from “harmful” interference and encourages innovation and deployment."
