TV stations being asked to move for mobile (Cellular) internet

It’s been reported recently that part of the FCC broadband plan is the desire to move some broadcast TV stations out of the 500Mhz frequency band so this can be used for cellular companies to have more bandwidth for their userbases.

This is entirely the WRONG move. Much more can be attained by using smaller cellular sites, and the deployment of picocell/microcell technology. If each home had even just 5Mb/s internet access, and a microcell device, the need for this would be minimized and cellular customers would be happier with increased coverage at their homes/offices.
