Believing nothing succeeds like success, AIR.U is following quickly on the heels of Gig.U with a bold plan to tap Super WiFi (unused TV channels) to bring wireless broadband to potentially hundreds of university towns in rural America.

Today's guests formed Advanced Internet Regions to plan, build and operate wireless networks that leverage the creativity of college communities to meet rural broadband needs. Robert Nichols (nichols6044@gmail.com), CEO of Declaration Networks Group, and Michael Calabrese (Calabrese@newamerica.net), Dir. of New America Foundation's Wireless Future Program, explain AIR.U's game plan.

Super WiFi supporters advocate for communities to aggressively push the envelope with this new iteration of standard TV technology. AIR.U expects to be the catalyst to propel Super WiFi into the mainstream while closing the digital divide in rural areas.
