PMSE clearing the 700 MHz band - Support for PMSE equipment owners

  • Start: 20 April 2017
  • Status: Open
  • End: 29 June 2017

In October 2016 we published our spectrum management decision to work towards accelerating the 700 MHz clearance programme by 18 months and releasing the spectrum for mobile services in May 2020, instead of September 2021. As a result, we have served notice on PMSE equipment owners that operate in the 700 MHz band and they will no longer have access to spectrum in this band from 1 May 2020.

Government has decided to fund a grant scheme to support PMSE equipment owners that have to vacate the 700 MHz band earlier than expected. We have agreed with Government to design and run a grant scheme to disburse the funds.

This document sets out our proposals for how the grant scheme should operate, including the eligibility criteria that claimants should satisfy in order to be considered for funding.
