Coalition aims to eliminate digital divide in rural areas

With all the changes upon us with new technology, it should come as no surprise that there is now a way to utilize television spectrums to deliver broadband internet.

Chuck Denowh, Montana spokesperson for the new coalition, Connect Americans Now (CAN), explained the importance and the purpose of CAN. “This issue has to do with television spectrum. The FCC [Federal Communications Commission] licenses all television spectrum and has control over all the spectrum out there. But, some of it is unused and the new technology referred to as television white space allows for broadband internet to be delivered over television spectrum,” Denowh explained.
