A Win for White Space

It looks like Google's rallying to open up the "white spaces" has paid off. The FCC voted and agreed with a 5-0 shutout vote that the unused airwaves between broadcast TV channels will be opened up for wireless broadband service for the public. In the official Google blog post, they mention about future Wi-Fi and how it will have greater coverage and refer to this as Wi-Fi on steroids. Hopefully we will see a similar think up here in Canada.
