Reuters is reporting that certain U.S. broadband regulators are considering the possibility of making more wireless spectrum available to wireless service providers such as carriers AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless. Based on the growing demand for bandwidth and capacity as seen by the uptake of smartphones and their data capabilities, government officials, lobbying organizations and the providers themselves feel access to more spectrum is warranted. Blair Levin, a broadband official at the Federal Communications Commission, recently said, "A key input is spectrum. There is consensus in the record; there is not enough of it. The demand curves from uses like smartphones suggest it's going to increase dramatically, for spectrum." One idea being considered is reclaiming some of the spectrum that is being used by government agencies, such as the Department of Defense.
