Spectrum Access: EHF licences


The Spectrum Access: EHF licence is for people and businesses to access three Extremely High Frequency (EHF) bands for a wide range of wireless connectivity applications.

On 1 October 2020, Ofcom published a statement that opened up access to the 116-122 GHz, 174.8-182 GHz and 185-190 GHz bands on a licensed basis.

To support innovation, the Spectrum Access: EHF Licence is available for applications. Each licence will enable access to one of these bands across the UK on a non-protection and non-interference basis, with use of multiple devices permitted.

The licence grants access to any one of the following bands, on a 'one band per licence' basis:

  • 116-122 GHz
  • 174.8-182 GHz
  • 185-190 GHz
