Statement published 1 October 2020
We want to support innovation and enable new uses of spectrum. This statement sets out how Ofcom will license terrestrial use of three bands in the 100-200 GHz range: 116-122 GHz, 174.8-182 GHz and 185-190 GHz.
Our conclusions follow consideration of responses to the consultations published in January and May 2020.
In light of responses to our consultation on supporting innovation in the 100-200 GHz range, published on 17 January 2020 and updated on 7 February, we have published a further consultation on additional details about the technical analysis underlying our proposals and are inviting any comments that stakeholders might have. The main content of this consultation is as follows:
For the avoidance of doubt, this information does not modify the proposals that we made in the January 2020 consultation nor our underlying analysis. We welcome comments on the further information we are releasing by 17 June 2020.
We have published a second version of our “Supporting innovation in the 100-200 GHz range” consultation, initially published on 17 January 2020, to incorporate a number of clarifications, including on the proposed technical conditions that would apply to licensed devices used indoors. This is reflected by the following changes to the document:
