Sens Daines (R-MT), Johnson (R-MS) Press Chairman Pai for Action on White Spaces
Sens Steve Daines (R-MT) and Ron Johnson (R-MS) have asked the Federal Communications Commission to resolve interference issues with TV white spaces (TVWS) use by unlicensed devices, come up with final guidance, and allow for the expansion of TVWS use. They say the technology is key to closing the rural broadband divide because it is an affordable connectivity answer for rural and tribal communities. Specifically, the Sens wrote to FCC Chairman Pai to say they want the FCC to finalize its reconsideration proceeding and its database accuracy proceeding so that broadband providers can invest in rural connectivity.
