Gain access to radio spectrum for developing, testing, trialling and demonstrating wireless devices in the UK.
We make spectrum available to stimulate innovation in the UK, including to help facilitate the development of 5G.
Ofcom aims to make it as simple as possible to gain fast access to radio spectrum for you to conduct research, development and trial innovative wireless technologies.
In this document we provide an update on the actions we will be taking to facilitate 5G rollout in the UK.
A person manufacturing, importing or supplying any radio or electrical apparatus is responsible for ensuring that it complies with all relevant legislation before it can be placed on the market or put into service in the UK (or in the European Economic Area).
This information is for those interested in gaining access to spectrum, on a commercial basis, where there are no existing suitable licences.
