A group of companies and a university in the UK are researching the possibility of using higher power limits for broadband wireless in unlicensed spectrum in rural areas: Lucent is involved in the project. Some people in the U.S. have pushed hard for the FCC to allow higher power in rural areas where the signals wouldn’t interfere with anyone else and where it would be really useful, because of the sparse populations, to be able to really boost the coverage area. Dave Hughes, the well-known, highly regarded researcher, has been vocal in trying to encourage the FCC to make such allowances.
