Your public library may be where the promise and the reality of TV white space wireless broadband meet, thanks to the Gigabit Libraries Network (GLN). Don Means, GLN Coordinator, joins us to invite your community libraries to participate in a national pilot project to create applications for this newly available unlicensed spectrum. 

For over 25 years, the public library has been the one place adults and kids in urban and rural communities can access the Internet. In fact, approximately 80 million people in the US get free wireless there, thanks to unlicensed wireless technology. 

Learn how GLN is igniting a movement nationwide to turn libraries into TV White Space testbeds that show communities how to get greater broadband capacity deployed over wider areas, even in rural regions. Shouldn't your library be on this leading edge?
