Microsoft uses white spaces over the technology to provide the internet; the White Spaces is a technology Microsoft company will use to provide internet. That technology is much less cost-effective, which means they will use those televisions which have been processed, underused or damaged.
The technology will take chips and circuit boards to reduce cost and deliver low-cost internet to the village’s teenagers and young people.
Report from Government officials that the WiFi range can reach up to 100 meters which is a much low distance, but with the new technology of White Spaces, the technology will enhance up to 200-300 MHz which can reach up to 10 KM from the main tower of White Spaces.
