Small Tech Leaders Urge FCC to Support TV White Spaces for Broadband


Last week, Voices for Innovation officially filed a letter with the Federal Communications Commission from nearly 300 small tech business leaders from across the country voicing support for using TV white spaces spectrum for broadband.

The letter urges FCC commissioners “to make three channels of TV white spaces spectrum available for broadband connectivity” to close our nation’s digital divide. Currently, 34 million Americans lack adequate access to high-speed internet.

You can support this initiative by asking your members of Congress to weigh in:
