Concurrent Spectrum Access

20 January 2015

Following an award process in April 2006, 12 licences were issued by Ofcom for concurrent access to a single spectrum block in the 1800 MHz range.  Because this spectrum fell between the allocations for cellular GSM1800 services and Digital European Cordless Telephones, it is sometimes referred to as “the DECT Guardband”.

The band was awarded on a technology neutral basis but with special provisions to ensure compatibility with GSM networks on adjacent frequency bands.  All the licensees have equal rights to use the whole frequency band.

Licences are tradable but may not be partitioned.  Some trading has occurred since initial award of the licences and the current licence holders are listed in the tables linked below, and in the Wireless Telegraphy Register of Ofcom’s Spectrum Information System.
