On 26 September 2017 the Government issued a direction to Ofcom concerning the authorisation of Commercial multi-user gateways (COMUGs) used for the purpose of voice calls over a publicly available telephone service or SMS. The direction made under section 5 of the Communications Act 2003, requires that these commercial multi-user gateways can only be authorised by a Wireless Telegraphy Act licence  and only in such cases where specific conditions, as outlined in the direction can be met.

In light of the direction, Ofcom will not make the regulations contained in our document “Commercial Multi User Gateway Review Notice of proposed regulations Statement & Notice” (PDF, 1018.1 KB) published on 6 July 2017.
