Statement published 25 June 2019

Earlier this year, four operators (EE Limited, Hutchison, Telefonica, and Vodafone) requested changes (licence variations) to their spectrum licences in the 3410 MHz to 3680 MHz range. These changes would update the technical conditions in each licence to align them to the recent European Union (EU) Harmonisation Decision (the “EU Decision”) on the 3.4 GHz to 3.8 GHz band.

On 18 April 2019, we published a consultation document setting out a provisional view that we were minded to agree to the variation requests, noting that this would also be consistent with the proposed licence conditions for the 3.6 GHz to 3.8 GHz band (set out in our consultation document “Award of the 700 MHz and 3.6-3.8 GHz spectrum bands" (the Award Consultation").
