Mobile broadband news

Speakers at a recent conference in the US have given an indication of how white spaces networks could provide a new lease of life for wireless broadband.

The advent of mobile broadband has recently taken a lot of the impetus from Wi-Fi technology, leading some analysts to predict its demise.

But judging by the views aired by cofounder and president of products Larry Page and US Federal Communications Commission chairman Kevin Martin at the Wireless Communications Association International this week, wireless has a bright future.

The use of white spaces allow wireless networks to operate in the unused television spectrum, giving the potential for more wireless hotspots to be created.

Mr Page revealed that the UK is one of the countries looking at white spaces wireless technology but sees the market having more success in the US initially.
