IEEE has just announced a new Wireless standard 802.22 that can cover up to 12,000 square miles. The standard is actually for Wireless Regional Area Networks or WRAN which uses the white spaces left in the TV frequency spectrum.


12,000 square miles works out to a circle with a radius of about 61 miles (I assume this is broadcast from a tower or something). Sounds impressive, but I don't know how this compares to existing cell phone/wireless networks (the estimate is 22 Mbps, which seems pretty slow). So is this something to be excited about, or just another overhyped gimmick? Will I be able to play EVE out in the wilds of Alaska?

Disclaimer: I am not, and probably never will be, out in the wilds of Alaska.

Suppose it depends on latency.

Another thing though is i wonder how powerful the wifi card your mobile phone/laptop/etc would have to be to reach 61 miles, probably even more of a battery killer Wink
