Excerpt:

Ultra high frequencies (UHF) below 700 MHz, known also as TV white space, is a largely vacant range and has the ability to pass through hills, vegetation, and buildings. It is widely viewed as an effective means to connect rural communities to broadband access.

The only thing I really dislike about living in the sticks is poor and expensive internet service.  I would love to see some reasonable alternatives.

I've been wanting something like this.

Long ago, in the days of analog TV, PBS was working with some company to use sideband(?) TV signals to deliver content. That died on the vine but I liked the idea of it.
