Got a broadband resource to share?

We are gathering a list of broadband resources to share at the Blandin Broadband conference on November 18-19, 2009. I’m going to create a bibliography and we’re going old school by handing out materials. If you have a link, you’d like me to add to the bibliography, please send it my way. (Via blog comment or email If you have a research report, policy analysis or other items you’d like us to handout please let me know. With all due respect, we’re not looking for sales collateral (although you can ask me about exhibitor opportunities) and we can’t print out multiple copies for you – but I thought I’d still throw out the opportunity.

  1. Great article – great reminder of White Spaces. Thank you.

    I wanted to pull out just one paragraph below. The folks in Claudville VA were lucky/smart to get in on this deal with the providers such as Spectrum Bridge, Dell, Microsoft and the TDF Foundation.

    “Due to its availability and range, TV white spaces have proved to be a very cost-effective way to distribute high-speed Internet in this heavily forested and hilly rural community,” said Peter Stanforth, CTO of Spectrum Bridge. “The non-line of sight conditions, coupled with long distances between radios, would have posed significant challenges to existing unlicensed alternatives. TV white spaces could prove to be invaluable to those striving to bring broadband access to underserved and unserved rural communities.”
