The coming wireless revolution

I've just been forwarded a link to a fascinating article explaining the American Federal Communications Commission (FCC) decision to allow gadgets that operate over television frequencies, which could open up the airwaves for wireless internet for the masses without all the gadgetry we currently need.

Internet signals would run through the airwaves using the frquency currently used by television. It supports sending more information per second and is just what mobile broadband has been crying out for.

The decision hasn't yet been made in the UK but if it works in the US then hopefully we'll follow suit.
