Spectrum Cleared By TV Will Be For Wireless Broadband

An administrator for the National Telecommunications and Information Administration has announced the government is looking into more spectrum for WiMax and similar wireless broadband technologies. Although providers will launch the technology in a variety of spectrum they currently own from 2.5 to 5.8 GHz, the government feels more spectrum may be necessary. They expect to auction off 700 MHz spectrum that will be cleared when analog TV is shut down for additional wireless data. The NTIA would like to auction the spectrum in 2008, so it can immediately be repurposed when analog tv broadcasts are stopped in early 2009.
