FCC Approves Plan for White Space Broadband

FCC officials approved a plan for white space wireless broadband in a vote today. For those unfamiliar, white space broadband would take the unused parts of the television broadcast spectrum and make it available for internet data transfer. Details on the specifics have yet to be announced, but this is seen as a boost for companies like Microsoft and Google, who want to provide internet for use in free programs and those in rural, hard-to-reach areas.
