Today on Meaghan's Minute, brought to you by API Technologies,the FCC is planning to move forward with a proposal to experiment with wireless spectrum -- the limited resource that increasing mobile internet use has made even more precious.

According to Computer World, the FCC's Chairman, Tom Wheeler, will release a plan soon to implement wireless spectrum sharing ideas recommended by the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, or PCAST. The council recommended the experimental spectrum sharing plans in 2012, but until now, the FCC had yet to act on them.

The most recent proposal by Wheeler would designate the 3.5GHz band as an "innovation band" for experimentation with spectrum sharing, in order to get the most use out the band dedicated previously to radar systems.
