I'm still hopeful (silly me) that something useful will come from white-spaces... useful, and [relatively] cheap.
Haven't you heard, if those who are making up this National Broadband Plan get their way at least 25 of the remaining 49 television channels as well the equivalent of 100 analog television channels of other prime spectrum will be auctioned (undoubtedly to AT&T and Verizon Wireless) for spectrum licenses and there won't be any room anywhere for white spaces. The wireless phone industry already has over 500 MHz of spectrum while the television industry now has less than 300 MHz (some of that shared) so guess who the real bandwidth hogs are?
