Here’s why white spaces are red hot. This Google-generated map shows the available white space channels across the U.S. Note: green indicates more channels and the lighter the green, the more channels there are. West Virginia in fact has 12 high-powered 6-MHz channels. According to Adaptrum, here’s how the math works out for the Mountain State: figure 50 to 100 small cells, each with 12 channels, at 14Mbps each. That’s 168Mbps per cell, times 100 cells, or nearly 17 gigabits of new capacity in a given area.
