Ofcom (Independent regulator and competition authority for the UK communications industries) has published its decisions on the auction of 4G spectrum licences, including measures to encourage competition and extend next-generation mobile broadband coverage to nearly everyone in the UK.
Ofcom is publishing a statement on this, together with a draft of the legal instrument which implements the auction rules and gives effect to the decisions.
The consultation on the draft auction regulations will close on 11 September 2012.
Afterwards, and taking into consideration the responses, Ofcom plans to make the regulation in the autumn.
Auction on 800 MHz and 2.6 GHz will take part before the end of 2012.
