Consultation: Proposed annual licence fees for 10 GHz, 28 GHz and 32 GHz spectrum

  • Start: 19 July 2022
  • Status: Open
  • End: 27 September 2022

In this consultation, we set out our proposals for the level of annual licence fees for 10 GHz, 28 GHz and 32 GHz spectrum and on the draft regulations to implement them.

We propose:

  • to set a national annual licence fee of £7,568 per 2 x 1 MHz for 10 GHz spectrum and £4,576 per 2 x 1 MHz for 32 GHz spectrum;
  • to set regional annual licence fees for 28 GHz spectrum based on a national rate of £4,576 per 2 x 1 MHz of spectrum;
  • that the proposed annual licence fees would apply from 21 February 2023, with an option to pay across ten equal monthly instalments; and
  • to align the regional annual licence fees previously set in 2015 for 28 GHz licences awarded in 2000 with the regional annual licence fees we are now proposing to set for 28 GHz licences awarded in 2008, including the payment dates, so that a single regional fee applies for 28 GHz spectrum awarded in both 2000 and 2008.

We aim to publish our decision and fee regulations by January 2023.
