Public Sector Spectrum Release (PSSR): Award of the 2.3 GHz and 3.4 GHz bands

  • Start: 07 November 2014
  • Status: Statement published
  • End: 23 January 2015

This document sets out Ofcom’s decisions on outstanding issues connected with the award of the 2.3 and 3.4 GHz spectrum bands.

In particular, it sets out our decision to proceed with an auction of all the newly available spectrum without imposing spectrum caps, and our decision on the reserve prices that will apply to spectrum awarded in the auction.


Following the European Commission’s decision to block the proposed acquisition of O2 by CK Hutchison (H3G), Ofcom intends to publish in the autumn a further consultation on competition measures and on specific aspects of auction design for the award of the 2.3 and 3.4 GHz spectrum bands.
