Television-Band White Spaces: Analysis & Forecasts

Summary

TV Band White Spaces are the unused TV channels in each geographic area. The FCC set-aside almost fifty TV channels, but not a single city comes even close to using them all. That means there is unused TV spectrum in each locality that could be used for other purposes including (1) wireless Internet service, (2) wireless local area networks, and (3) hot spots for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. The spectrum could be used without taking anything away from TV stations.

This report includes a five-year quantitative market forecast, as well as future business opportunities for TV Band White Spaces.
