In announcement on the Google Public Policy Blog today, Google wrote that we are one step closer to a world with super WiFi. Apparently the FCC has selected 9 administrators, including Google to be in charge of a white spaces database, and outlined some rules for them to follow. White Spaces are public airwaves that are unused by any current wireless signals, it is these public airwaves that will eventually be used to bring super WiFi to the world. At the moment, the FCC will be working with the 9 administrators to ensure that the white spaces are truly unused before they can proceed with anything else. Once the white spaces are cleared by the FCC, we can expect companies to start developing the next generation super WiFi technology. Anyone excited about super WiFi?
