An anonymous reader writes: Ficora, the Finnish equivalent of FCC gave green light for a coalition of academic and private enterprises to radiate in the so called whitespace bands. Whitespace radio spectrum designated for, but locally unused by TV-broadcasters.

Wireless industry expects whitespace to alleviate congestion of the airwaves.

Although prior whitespace tests have been carried out in Europe mainly in Cambridge, this is the first test in Europe that uses a geolocation database for frequency allocation.

Whitespace has been discussed previously on Slashdot here and here.
