On 1 January 2016, Ofcom became the sole regulator (other than in relation to advertising) for on demand programme services (“ODPS”) under Part 4A of the Communications Act 2003 (the “Act”).
This document consults on proposals to use the spectrum in the 410 to 450 MHz (UHF Band 1) and 450 to 470 MHz (UHF Band 2) bands more intensively and efficiently to best address the requirements of current and future users.
Two statutory notices of Ofcom’s proposals to make changes to spectrum trading regulations for mobile services in the 3600 to 3800 MHz band.
This is a consultation about changes that we are proposing to make to the General Conditions of Entitlement – the regulatory rules that all communications providers must follow in order to operate in the UK.
This document provides notice of, and invites stakeholders’ views on, Ofcom’s proposal to make two statutory instruments in connection with the award of spectrum in the 2.3 GHz and 3.4 GHz bands. These are a limitation order and regulations amending The Wireless Telegraphy (Register) Regulations 2012.
This document invites comments on whether the use of commercial multi-user ‘gateway’ devices, known as COMUGs, meets the requirements for licence exemption set out in the Wireless Telegraphy Act 2006.
Ofcom exists to make communications markets work for everyone. To achieve this, we are proposing three main goals: to promote competition and ensure that markets work effectively for consumers; to secure standards and improve quality; and to protect consumers from harm.
Award of the 2.3 and 3.4 GHz spectrum bands. Competition issues and auction regulations
Ofcom sets technical standards for the digital terrestrial TV platform (also often known as Freeview ).
This consultation presents our initial thinking on how we could expand spectrum access for mobile services in the 3.6 – 3.8 GHz band.
This document is consulting on the policy for authorising use of spectrum in the range 1781.7 - 1785 MHz block paired with 1876.7 - 1880 MHz block, which we refer to as the "DECT guard band".
This document invites comments on Ofcom’s proposal to make two sets of regulations, the Wireless Telegraphy (Mobile Satellite Earth Apparatus) (Exemption) Regulations 2016 and the Wireless Telegraphy (Exemption) (Amendment) (No.2) Regulations 2016.
This Call for Input is asking stakeholders for their input and initial views on a strategic review of spectrum used by fixed wireless services.
This Call for Input (CFI) introduces the 3.8 GHz to 4.2 GHz band as a candidate band for enhanced spectrum sharing, for potential new innovative applications, and seeks feedback and input from Stakeholders.
Ofcom is today consulting on a proposal to amend the regulations setting the fees payable for the 900 MHz and 1800 MHz spectrum.
Consultation on proposals to amend the licence exemption regulations for white space devices to include additional organisations.
Proposal to amend the existing fees for some Wireless Telegraphy Act products
In 2005 we concluded a review of the market for broadcasting transmission services. As a result of this review, we found that Crown Castle and ntl:broadcast, which both now form part of Arqiva, had significant market power in the market for the provision of access to masts and sites and shared or shareable antenna systems.
We set out proposals which would enable us to bring forward the point at which the 700MHz spectrum band is nationally available for mobile data to a target of no later than Q2 2020.
This document sets out our proposed Space Spectrum Strategy which covers the use of spectrum by the satellite and space science (including earth observation) sectors.
This document consults on proposals to authorise terrestrial base stations which allow ‘direct air-to-ground’ mobile satellite service (MSS) communications to aircraft.
