Annual licence fees for 900 MHz and 1800 MHz spectrum: Provisional decision and further consultation
- Start: 19 February 2015
- Status: Statement published
- End: 17 April 2015
The Government directed Ofcom in 2010 to revise the fees for 900 MHz and 1800 MHz spectrum licences to reflect the full market value of those frequencies. The fees are paid by the mobile operators (EE, H3G, Telefónica and Vodafone) who use some of the spectrum to provide 2G and 3G services, including voice calls, and some for 4G mobile services.
This document sets out our provisional decision on those fees and consults on whether, and if so how, the geographic coverage commitment made by the mobile operators should impact those fees.
