Final statement published 14 December 2018

UK Broadband holds a spectrum licence which authorises it to use 168 MHz of radio spectrum in two separate 84 MHz blocks at 3605 – 3689 MHz and at 3925 – 4009 MHz. In May 2018 UK Broadband requested a number of changes to this licence concerning the lower frequency block (3605 – 3689 MHz), including: shifting it down by 5 MHz, surrendering 4 MHz of spectrum in that block, and changing the applicable technical conditions.

On 27 June 2018, Ofcom published a consultation setting out its provisional view that it was minded to agree to the variation request. This document sets out Ofcom’s decision to grant the variation.
