Assessment of future mobile competition and proposals for the award of 800 MHz and 2.6 GHz spectrum and related issues

  • Start: 22 March 2011
  • Status: Closed
  • End: 31 May 2011

This consultation sets out our proposals for the largest ever single award in the UK, of internationally harmonised mobile spectrum – the 800MHz and 2.6GHz bands.

We expect this spectrum to be used to deliver the next generation of mobile broadband services, using fourth generation (4G) mobile technologies such as LTE and WiMAX. These mobile broadband services might have speeds approaching today’s fixed broadband services, with coverage significantly better than today’s 3G coverage instead approaching today’s 2G (voice) coverage.
