UK white space trial participants to include Google, Microsoft and Neul

As we reported earlier this year, the UK is planning extensive trials of so-called white space connectivity – using the spectral buffer zones between TV channels in order to carry broadband and machine-to-machine communications. The regulator Ofcom has now named the 6-month trial’s participants, which range from Google(s goog) and Microsoft(s msft) to BT(s bt), white space radio pioneer Neul and .uk domain name registry Nominet.
