Every day, advances driven by cloud computing play an increasingly important role in our economy and society. But more than 19 million rural Americans still lack access to affordable, reliable broadband. A technology solution exists: broadband signals can be carried many miles on unused TV spectrum, known as TV white spaces (TVWS).

But to spur market-driven adoption of this technology, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) must establish rules to provide sufficient spectrum and appropriate technical requirements. In VFI’s upcoming webinar, Microsoft’s Paula Boyd, Senior Director, Government and Regulatory Affairs for Telecommunications, will bring you up to speed about the status of this issue in Washington, DC, and how you can help move the needle on this issue. She’ll also highlight the work that Microsoft is doing to help deploy TVWS broadband in communities across the country.
