Or equipment manufacturers...

I used to work for a TV manufacturer. A lot of time and treasure was being spent checking and improving the adjacent channel interference (ACI) performance so that these whitespace transmissions did not disrupt the viewing experience. ACI is quite a tough kind of interference for a radio and so improving ACI performance costs money, which will of course eventually be paid for by the consumer.

Me too Rick...this is a pretty intruguing idea...my bet is that established big carrier paid for the bandwidth and need to spend their dollars on optimizing services in what they already paid for...but this should be an exciting opening for some start-ups!
