Default Google launches white space offensive with new web site

"Think of it as WiFi on steroids," says Phil Gossett, software engineer for Google. "The obvious application for this spectrum is for Internet connectivity, everywhere all the time." Gossett is talking about the potential that unlicensed use of "white space" could offer consumers, and he's talking about it in a YouTube video on Google's new Web site: freetheairwaves.com.

The site is clearly an attempt to frame the white space cause in lay person's terms. "Remember that fuzzy static between channels on the old TVs?" Freetheairwaves.com's home page asks. "Today more than three-quarters of those radio airwaves, or 'white space' spectrum are completely unused." Letting consumers tune into that vacant spectrum to send and pick up broadband could spark a "revolution," Google says, fostering "universal wireless Internet."
