New white space standard: up to 22Mbps over 12,000 square mile
This could really help out some rural areas whom are getting absolutely horrible speeds right now, at hopefully reasonably priced packages.

more pollution :)

but yeah, decent speeds out in the goonies would be cool

62 mile radius = 12,000 miles?

but what they really mean to say is maybe 11 mbps across 20 mile radius. which itself isn't bad at all. I just hate using theoretical maximums.

I'm fairly certain a lot of rural people are lucky if they can get 1-2Mbps down out in the middle of no where with horrible upload speeds

This is kinda a good way to re-use what was already here. I love this better than a new standard. The question is, will my bunny ears be able to get it :P

Not miles... square miles. The area of a circle with a 62 mile radius is about 12070 square miles.

Have to be a whole of nodes being set up to get any decent coverage though.

Not necessarily, the lower in frequency we go, the longer the wavelength of the signal is, which in turn means we need to repeat the signal less the longer a signal's wavelength is.

I was thinking more of intereference from ground clutter or weather. Even digital signals suffer beacuase of those factors.

yes but not much. and the future is wireless not by cable, with all the pains and issues that will come along
