Connected Nation Applauds FCC’s TV White Spaces Vote

Fcc Logo Generic 300x169Bowling Green, Ky. (March 21, 2019) – The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) took steps yesterday regarding how the TV white spaces technology market will be regulated.  The agency voted to adopt new rules that will guide how unlicensed spectrum can be leveraged to help American families and communities.

“We commend Chairman Pai and the FCC for taking action to provide valuable regulatory certainty regarding TV white spaces technology, which will create new possibilities for rural broadband connectivity,” said Brent Legg, Vice President of Government Affairs, Connected Nation. “White spaces technology can efficiently deliver broadband services to rural areas due to the better propagation characteristics of lower band frequencies that the technology utilizes.  While there is still additional work to do, this action is a great step forward in bringing better broadband to rural America.”
