This paper presents a countrywide assessment of TV whitespace availability for Wi-Fi-like secondary system, using the Republic of Macedonia as an example study area. The presented methodology is general and applicable to any European country. Before introducing the specifics of the assumed secondary system, the paper provides in details the steps of TVWS assessment procedure, considering the regulatory ruling paradigms defined by ECC and FCC. The performance evaluation assumes Wi-Fi-like access points operating as secondary system that utilize vacant frequency chunks in TV band. The paper investigates viable combinations of frequency chunks-width and regulatory ruling which can be employed for TVWS utilization by Wi-Fi-like secondary network, regarding the achievable throughput by secondary users.
