<![CDATA[NHMC has long supported rules to make the unused TV airwaves available for unlicensed broadband wireless devices. These airwaves have excellent characteristics that allow signals to reach farther and penetrate walls and other structures. Access to these airwaves could enable more powerful public Internet connections - - super Wi-Fi hot spots - - with extended range, fewer dead spots, and improved individual speeds as a result of reduced congestion on existing networks. Many other applications are possible, such as broadband access to schools particularly in rural areas, campus networks that are better able to keep pace with user’s increasing demands for bandwidth, home networks that are better able to support real time streaming video applications, remote sensing of water supplies by municipalities and support for the smart grid.
