<< In a filing with the FCC Thursday, Google presented results of an "initial phase of ongoing trials" the company is conducting of white spaces technology, which it says "demonstrate that digital televisions... and wireless microphones can be amply protected."

In addition to Google, white spaces coalition members Microsoft and Philips have also undertaken their own white spaces testing, according to Scott Blake Harris, an attorney representing the white spaces coalition.

Each company is using a separate, proprietary technology for the testing, Harris said.

Should the use of white spaces be approved, these companies could begin selling related devices, software and chips based on the technology that could be used as soon as 2009. A decision on the use of white spaces is expected from the FCC as soon as this month. >>

Can we start to see more wireless broadband alternatives appearing as early as 2009 by members of the White Space Coalition?
