ABSTRACT
Comments on the proposal of using television white space, which refers to the 6 megahertz segments of spectrum between active stations in a given area, for unlicensed broadband services in the U.S. Possible use of the television white space in rural areas where broadband is not available; Interference that can be caused by the space usage on radio emissions; Concerns raised on why the proposed space usage should be unlicensed.
