"TVWS systems are very easy to set up and a cost effective connectivity option particularly in rural areas offer where fiber, DSL, cable services are not available,” says John Gavan of Delta County, Colorado Public Library.
“It is amazing how persuasive it is when something actually works. Having libraries engage in showing (even modestly) what is possible in this new TV White Space environment is the most persuasive way to get others up and running," says GLN advisor and internet pioneer, Vint Cerf.
“This new ‘plug and play’ wireless infrastructure has enormous potential to quickly and inexpensively provide broadband access to billions of people in underserved areas world over,” says Don Means, GLN Coordinator.
"In 2010 the Commission created a new spectrum sharing paradigm by enabling unlicensed devices to access unused spectrum between broadcast television channels the TV whitespaces. Unlicensed spectrum is an integral component of the wireless ecosystem. Aggregate capacity of the world's Wi-Fi networks, which use unlicensed spectrum, is 28 times greater than the capacity of the world's 3G and 4G networks, which use licensed airwaves."
