The Future of Super WiFi Starts Here in N. Carolina

  Broadcast in Internet

Call in to speak with the host

Super WiFi (a.k.a. TV white spaces) promises to re-purpose idle TV channels so they can be used to build more powerful and less expensive WiFi networks than with previous versions of WiFi. Wilmington, NC is the first US city to put this WiFi-on-steroids to work.

Leslie Chaney, Chief Technologist for New Hanover County, describes the progress Wilmington has made to date with this government-use only network. Lessons learned here can be exported to other communities to help them build networks that serve constituents as well as government.

GigaOm Senior Writer Stacey Higginbotham joins Craig Settles today as guest co-host. To get more background on Super WiFi, listen to this Gigabit Nation interview with AIR.U, a consortium that's bringing colleges, small towns and other parties together to create Super WiFi networks to cover rural areas.
