Handyman will like this!!!

"Licensing public frequencies to private companies is just one aspect of all this. There's also been much talk of using unlicensed white space (the frequencies between existing television channels) to provide long-range wireless broadband. Some people call this "Super WiFi" or "WiFi on steroids," and with a range of approximately 100 kilometres, it could be used to deliver fast internet service to rural areas, avoiding costs associated with the last mile."

Vianet is already serving Prince, I think.

Maybe theyl'll jump on the bandwagon helping some outliers.

Sure as heck useless Bell won't.

I am going to find out when I get home if Vianet is serving Prince. That would be awesome for my daughter and her fiance who have been waiting for over a year for something, anything lol.
