UK Broadband application for licence variation | Ofcom

UK Broadband application for licence variation | Ofcom

Ofcom consulted on permitting a variation in UK Broadband's 3.5GHz license.

The variation asked that UK Broadband to allowed to: -

* use the license in a technology neutral manner (i.e. they can decide what technology to use).

* remove the limitation of only fixed terminals.

* increase the maximum in-band power level to +29dBW/MHz.

Ofcom are planning to grant the variation but limit mobile terminals to 5dBW/MHz and issue the new license as soon as is practical.

This may stimulate UK Broadband's growth, though they are still only offering limited coverage and limited areas.
