The Agility White Space Radio system from Koos Technical Services, which is targeted towards broadband service providers or industrial customers. Capable of handling IP-based traffic at data rates that range from 1.5 to 3.1 megabytes per second, the new radio is limited to fixed-point installations and has approval for operation only in Wilmington, North Carolina, but nationwide expansion is expected.
Ars Technica – In 2007, the White Spaces Coalition promised download speeds of up to 80Mbps to our homes using the white spaces in the analog TV spectrum. They also expect 400 to 800 Mbps for white space short-range networking.
