Microsoft To Implement TV White Spaces Technology For Internet Connectivity In Africa

Microsoft today announced that they are partnering with the Kenyan Ministry of Information and Communications and Kenyan Internet Service Provider Indigo Telecom Ltd. to deliver low-cost, high-speed wireless broadband across Kenya. This  low-cost, high-speed wireless broadband is done using solar-powered base stations together with TV white spaces, a technology partially developed by Microsoft Research.

Microsoft is testing and researching about the the White Space approach for a long time and they are looking to deploy it in Kenya. See related blog and video.
