Event this Wednesday: Larry Page to push for white spaces on Capitol Hill



Earlier this year Google co-founder Larry Page was in our nation's capital to talk about Google's vision of "wi-fi on steroids." At an event sponsored by the New America Foundation, he explained that the unused airwaves between broadcast TV channels ("white spaces") have the potential to provide affordable, nationwide high-speed wireless Internet connectivity.

This Wednesday, September 24, Larry will return to Washington to address lawmakers and urge action on white spaces.

"Broadband for the Future Event"
Keynote Speaker: Google Co-Founder Larry Page
Wednesday, September 24, 2008
11:30 am - 1:00 pm ET
Room SD-G50, Dirksen Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510

Larry will join white space supporters from across the U.S. to discuss how these airwaves hold the potential to spur innovation, deploy affordable broadband, and create new applications for all Americans.

Members of the Wireless Innovation Alliance will be on-hand throughout the program to discuss white space technology and answer questions.

We hope you can join us on Wednesday.
