"Old TV signals used to plug Monmouthshire broadband gap"

For 'signals' read 'bandwidth' ...

The broadband gap in a part of rural Monmouthshire is set to be
plugged by TV broadcast frequencies left over from the digital
switchover.

A pilot scheme will see TV white space used to send a high-speed
broadband signal from a standard mast.


I wonder if this is a community broadband system (like North Yorkshire's
MoorsWeb) which uses UHF between people's houses and a base station that has
fast backhaul (by fibre, cable or microwave) to the internet.

What frequencies do these community wifi broadband systems normally use?
