Microsoft plans to spend $10 billion to bring broadband to rural America

Seems like a good idea until you start to read:

"The project will rely on a new “white-space” technology, which beams internet data over unused television broadcast frequencies. Microsoft hopes to work with the government to collect information from local television stations about what part of their television spectrum goes unused."

I have had the experience of a major sporting event reduced to only  hard wired gear working thank to the stadium management company going to a white space data network, not fun.
