Wireless Data Taps into TV Spectrum
I love my BlackBerry -- well, I'm not impressed with its Web browsing and the
coverage could be better, so "like" is a better word -- especially
its ability to tether to my laptop and give me Internet access when I'm on the
beach or in a bar (don't tell my boss, OK?).
But while coverage is getting better, there are too many bars and beaches where
I can't connect, or get a connection slower than a 300 baud Radio Shack Model
The United Nations (probably as frustrated about this as I am) is hoping to
solve this problem, and will now let wireless service providers use
parts of the TV spectrum. The goal is to have worldwide wireless data access
by 2015. I'm not sure I can wait that long.
