Bill seeks to free up vacant broadcast spectrum

Senator John Sununu is set to introduce a bill that would free up vacant broadcast spectrum, which could provide additional frequencies for WiMAX and WiFi services. Sununu worked on a bill last year that would have required the FCC to permit unlicensed use of unused broadcast spectrum between 54 MHz and 698 MHz. Last year the FCC made it easier for low-power devices to take advantage of "white spaces," which traditionally have protected broadcast TV from interference.
