This document confirms that Ofcom has made the Wireless Telegraphy (White Space Devices) (Exemption) (Amendment) Regulations 2016. This amends the the Wireless Telegraphy (White Space Devices) (Exemption) Regulations 2015 to include additional organisations which have qualified to provide white space database services.
‘White spaces’ are gaps in the radio spectrum in frequency bands, which can be used to offer new wireless applications to benefit consumers and businesses.
The white spaces covered by the regulations are in frequencies currently used for digital terrestrial TV and wireless microphones, among other services, in the 470 - 790 MHz spectrum band.
The regulations come into effect on 9 June 2016.
