This paper introduces the implementation of IEEE 802.22 Wireless Regional Area Network (WRAN) for broadband Internet access in rural areas.It highlights the advantage of implementing such technology and feasibility to co-exist with Digital Video Broadcasting-Terrestrial (DVB-T) in Malaysia. It adopts a model to determine the maximum number of WRAN base stations (BSs) by analyzing its co-channel interference between the BSs. The analysis shown that maximum WRAN BSs that could co-exist is 8 to 19 BSs outside the protection contour of the DVB-T BS. Coverage areas of 30-100 km will also feasible to co-exist. By implementing the IEEE 802.22 WRAN, the digital divide can be narrowed and broadband penetration would be increased.
