President Barack Obama is expected to sign a memorandum Monday to nearly double the amount of federal and commercial spectrum available for smart phones and wireless Internet devices

The move comes several months after the two federal agencies that control the nation's airwaves—the Federal Communications Commission and the Commerce Department—began working on plans to identify and free up 500 megahertz of airwaves for consumer mobile broadband services. The announcement is mostly an endorsement of the agencies' continuing efforts.


Administration officials are targeting federal spectrum held by agencies such as the Defense Department, as well as airwaves that are being used by TV stations.
