White space. Sounds like something from a sci-fi novel. But, it's real. We talked about this last year when the FCC voted to open this part of the broadcast spectrum. Starting Monday, the agency will start a 45-day trial period to figure out how best to use what's known as "Super WiFi."

From the Washington Post:

"Unleashing white spaces spectrum will enable a new wave of wireless innovation," said FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski in a statement. "It has the potential to exceed the billions of dollars in economic benefit from WiFi, the last significant release of unlicensed spectrum, and drive private investment and job creation."
