Ofcom ups the power in the 1800MHz band

Ofcom, the Super Regulator, has made a statement allowing 1800MHz licensees to increase the power from 62dBm to 65dBm.

The current licensees are 1800MHz (1805 - 1876.7 MHz) licensees are: -

  • Telef√≥nica: 1805.1 to 1810.9 MHz
  • Vodafone: 1810.9 to 1816.7 MHz
  • H3G: 1816.7 to 1826.7 MHz (plus 1826.7-1831.7 from October 2015)
  • EE: 1831.7 to 1876.7 MHz (plus 1826.7-1831.7 until September 2015)

The 1800 spectrum is used for downlink bandwidth and the operators use it for LTE services, though it could also be used for WiMAX.

This should allow for increased range of LTE services (i.e. mobiles from base stations).
