Free the Airwaves

Via the Google blog: the FCC is set to rule shortly on the unused ‘white spaces’ – parts of the spectrum between broadcast TV channels that currently goes largely unused.

Google’s launching Free the airwaves – a campaign to make people aware of the FCC’s pending decision that could alter the broadband landscape significantly. If the FCC turns the ‘whitespace’ into an unlicensed band the US might finally be able to escape it’s third-world, backwater broadband status. We need more competition!
