Award of available spectrum: 10 GHz, 28 GHz, 32 GHz and 40 GHz—10 GHz and the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games | Ofcom

Ofcom are planning to auction the 10 GHz, 28 GHz, 32 GHz and 40 GHz bands and have held various consultations on these bands and are proposing to make them available via various auctions (200 MHz of the 10 GHz band is utilised by the MoD).

The Olympic Games are due to be held in East London in 2012 and 10 GHz is suitable for video links and wireless cameras. Ofcom (as part of guarantees made by the UK government) is to make spectrum available for the Olympics free of charge.

Since there will be many broadcasters at the Olympics in 2012 and in test events in 2010, Ofcom are looking at making 10 GHz available, so if Ofcom issue a license or licenses the license(s) will have to take this into account.

Ofcom are holding a consultation and comments should be submitted by 12 April 2007.
