WASHINGTON (AP) – The White House says President Barack Obama is taking advantage of advances in the wireless industry to help create jobs.

Obama issued a presidential memorandum Friday 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 to satisfy demand.

The White House says the announcements build on a program Obama launched recently to bring high-speed digital connections to practically all U.S. students to improve teaching and learning.
