White Space technology isn’t just about putting rural communities online though. It lets signals travel large distances and penetrate walls, which could have implications on the range of WiFi signals too. The technology works by searching for unused areas of the airwaves or gaps called ‘White Spaces’ that exist in bands that have been reserved for TV broadcasts, and these are used to transmit and receive wireless signals. Essentially, the technology helps to repurpose and recycle what is a limited resource. So how much White Space is there? Ofcom says that the amount of white space available would be similar to the spectrum currently available for 3G services. (via The UK close to ‘White Space’ wireless broadband technology - TNW UK)
