    HOORAY!! Maybe now we can get high speed Internet in our unserved pocket in Madison County, NC.

    We’d better not drop our guard though; the telecoms, etc, have powerful lobbies and GOBS of money.

    When I first heard Wally Bowen speak of “whitespace”, I had no earthly idea of what he was talking about. I’m sure there are many others in the same boat. Would love film some roundtable discussions on “whitespaces” to be aired on URTV, and several webspaces, plus to be uploaded to Google video.
