WISPA Conversation, Animal Farm in Jan. '09

Jack Unger, the FCC Committee Chairman and WISPA Board Secretary, received The 2008 WISPA Outstanding Contribution Award at ISPCON 2008 in San Jose.

Elizabeth Bowles is President and General Counsel of Aristotle Inc., a nationally-recognized Internet, Email, and Application Service Provider as well as an award-winning web design and interactive media firm.

Watch and listen to these two wireless Internet service provider experts summarize what's up at ISPCON! on Suzanne Bowen's Viddler channel.

Jack shared some thoughts condensed here ... a key goal for WISPA at ISPCON is for WISPs, the media and the government to understand the importance of the television white spaces and to provide wireless (not dialup) Internet access to residents and businesses in those areas.

Anne Tredway of Super Technologies, Inc. asked Jack, "How many bands are in that white space?"

40-50 television channels...

L. Elizabeth Boyles (very interesting speaker at ISPCON) explains that WISPs have been shut out of so much spectrum by decisions made by the government.
