Google wants to reuse TV spectrum for fast mobiles

Following the release of Android, it looks like Google has no intention of leaving the mobile world alone. According to Bloomberg, the internet search giant submitted a plan to Federal Communications Commission asking it to open up unused TV airwaves for mobile use.

Bloomberg reports that Google’s plan says that the vacant spectrum or “white spaces” could be used for high-speed mobile access without causing interference without disrupting TV signals.

Google has long been tinkering with acquiring spectrum of its own, and lost out last week to Verizon Wireless in a spectrum auction. Now its got the handsets ready and mobile search is opening up, making sure consumers have speedy mobile networks at their disposal would be a boon to Google. It seems, though, that despite Google’s pleas the “white spaces” won’t be opened up any time soon.
