Advertisement of a national radio Additional Services licence

  • Start: 07 December 2016
  • Status: Open
  • End: 30 January 2017

Additional Services are services which use the ‘spare’ capacity within the signals carrying sound broadcasting services on relevant frequencies, for example to transmit data.

Ofcom is required to do all it can to secure that all the spare capacity on relevant frequencies which is available for Additional Services is used for their provision under Additional Services licences.  

There is currently one Additional Service licence.  It is held by INRIX UK Ltd and is used to transmit traffic and road travel information to in-car navigation devices, using spare capacity on the national FM frequencies used to broadcast Classic FM.  INRIX’s licence is due to expire on 28 February 2018.

Ofcom is proposing to advertise a new Additional Service licence in the first quarter of 2017 using the same spare capacity on the Classic FM frequencies. We ask four consultation questions about these proposals and invite responses to them by 30 January 2017.
