The white space spectrum is located between TV broadcasts, and currently is not used. Google is one of the companies pushing to make it available for use to allow for a high speed mobile network across the U.S.

Page insists it will benefit consumers and businesses alike, though tests have shown that it would interfere with TV broadcasts.

This has caused TV broadcasters to disagree with the idea, stating it would hamper their ability to broadcast.

The spectrum could be used in 2009 when analog television broadcasts go digital, though more tests will be needed.
