The Other Problem With UWB: Spectrum

Oh right. While some have been crowning UWB king of the wireless space already, it appears that there are a few more problems the technology faces. Beyond the aggravating years-long deadlock over competing standards it appears that various government agencies are likely to apply a number of restrictions to the technology, limiting UWB to less spectrum, and making the technology a lot less useful. This is not a new issue, but the fact that it doesn't look easy to solve is another problem for UWB. This is unfortunate, as the technology has always had so much potential, but keeps running into these roadblocks.
