Innovative uses of spectrum | Ofcom

Ofcom is consulting on a new license for radio spectrum, the Innovative Use Of Spectrum license which will cost £2,000 pa.

This license will be introduced to foster innovative spectrum use (as the name implies) where existing license regimes don't fit or are too cumbersome.

It is expected that spectrum will come from areas managed by public bodies such as the MOD.

The licenses will be issued on a first-come-first-served and a non-interference, non-protected basis.

They will cover the UK or smaller areas within the UK.

The consultation closes on 18/12/08
