Door County Might Solve Wireless Problem

A system that uses the spectrum space vacated by local television stations to deliver wireless broadband internet service holds a lot of potential for Door County.  That's the assessment from Door County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Jim Schuessler.  The TV White Space process is already showing good results in rural, wooded areas of the eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  Schuessler says such a system merits a closer look in Door County.



Packerland Broadband of Iron Mountain, Michigan is operating the TV White Space system in Michigan with download speeds of 25-megabits.   The company is looking to expand service into Forest County, Marinette County and Oconto County.
