The U.S. Commerce Department's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) group has identified 115MHz of wireless spectrum currently being used by the federal government that can be vacated and used for mobile broadband services instead. Part of the earmarked spectrum comes from the Commerce's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration satellites, which is used to deliver breaking weather alerts. it is also used by the Defense Department's radar systems on ships. The NTIA said it is examining an additional 2200MHz of spectrum for reassignment to mobile broadband usage.
