Will white space ever help us people that have no choice other then 3g/dial-up/sat.Will I be able to buy a white space usb device a plug it into my computer or will big company's gobble it all up then resell.

It will..... some day..... hopefully....

IF, I repeat IF, the white space spectrum remains in-tact, and if the hardware vendors are able to do some mass production and drive the price down. The first generation devices were only able to do about 3 megs, but the upcoming second generation devices look like they will be able to do up to 12 to 16 megs of TCP throughput. Once channel bonding is up and running, the throughput could go up drastically from there.

But again, we're still waiting on approved and affordable devices. You'll also need a provider to offer it in your area.
