My zip code has only 1 of 50 channels available If a company wants to do business in my zip code for local area internet WISP substitute(which they call a WRAN), there is only 1 channel available out of 50 channels.
But for say a hardware device that provides a house size WiFi substitute, there are 8 channels available.
So there may be markets for hardware devices for individual homes, but if you live anywhere in a metro area near a large city, the market for companies that hope to use Whitespace spectrum to start a WRAN are practically nil.
I will be perfectly happy if the budget cuts specified in the Budget Control Act go into effect. 3 cheers for the sequester. Take the money from the drunken federal spenders.
Yes, most well populated areas will likely have minimal channels available, but take the cornfield that I grew up in and life could get interesting.

We have several spots in my area. The only iffy spots are near Kalispell.
This would benefit rural areas, especially tiny towns where I grew up in.
