Obama to take advantage of advances in wireless
(AP) - The White House says President Barack Obama is taking advantage of new advances in the wireless industry to help create jobs.
Obama is directing federal agencies to be more efficient in their use of radio spectrum and to make more capacity available to satisfy the growing demand for broadband Internet.
There's also a $100 million investment in spectrum sharing and advanced communications. And, a "Spectrum Technology Day" is being planned to call attention to advances in spectrum sharing and other innovations aimed at satisfying the demand for it.
The White House says the announcements will build on a program Obama recently announced to bring high-speed, digital connections to practically all U.S. students to improve teaching and learning.
