Broadband coverage in remote parts of the UK could be improved by using "white space technology", it has been claimed.
The UK's telecoms watchdog has published a proposal to boost the country's broadband coverage by utilising unused radio waves.
Ofcom explained the so-called "white space technology" works by searching for frequency that is not being taken up by TV channels and using it to transmit and receive wireless signals.
According to the regulator, this innovation could enhance home broadband access in rural parts of the UK. It said white space devices are able to use lower frequencies than Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-enabled gadgets, with these waves able to travel further and move through walls more easily.
The organisation has opened up a consultation on the matter, with the closing date scheduled for December 7th 2010.
"We hope that these frequencies, which offer improved signal reliability, capacity and range over existing wireless technologies, will bring clear benefits for consumers," said Professor William Webb, director of technology resources at Ofcom.
Last week, the body revealed mobile broadband is currently available to 87 per cent of the UK population.
