FCC Commissioner Tom Wheeler underscored the need to find and free up more spectrum in a recent meeting with the Obama Administration. Wheeler met with Lawrence Strickling, the Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Communications and Information, to discuss the FCC's progress in finding 500 megahertz of spectrum for wireless broadband. The FCC says it is almost halfway to meeting that goal. Wheeler and Strickling agreed that the FCC and federal government need to expand spectrum sharing between federal and non-federal users to help accomplish its targets. In 2010, President Obama set a goal of making 500 megahertz available for broadband by the end of the decade. The FCC has been able to locate and re-purpose various slices of spectrum since then, but admits plenty of work remains to be done.
