What the Heck are White Spaces?

A Quick Explanation of White Spaces

Without affordable and accessible Internet choices, too many people are left on the wrong side of the digital divide -- virtually forgotten in a nation that increasingly demands high-speed Internet access to engage socially, politically and economically.

On November 4, the Federal Communications Commission will decide whether to open the vacant public airwaves between TV channels, the white spaces, for high-speed Internet access. The FCC has indicated their support for opening the airwaves to everyone. Then, a powerful corporate lobby started pressuring the FCC to keep the white spaces available for sale.
