The following statement is attributed to Harold Feld, legal director of Public Knowledge:
“We are very pleased that the FCC has moved ahead to implement its order from last year allowing broadband service to be offered in the so-called 'white spaces' between digital TV channels.
“Selecting an administrator for the white spaces database is a crucial step toward bringing consumers another choice in a restrictive broadband marketplace. We expect that use of the white spaces spectrum will foster innovation and create jobs as new devices and services become available.”
Note: The FCC order is here.
