Authorising 2 GHz base stations to allow aeronautical communications

Ofcom has published details of the technical conditions and fees for a form of licence for the operation of 2 GHz terrestrial base stations.

In combination with a satellite, these base stations will provide broadband services to aircraft. This publication follows our consultation in 2016 and our recent decision to authorise this use.

This form of licence will permit Inmarsat to use spectrum in the 2 GHz band to provide broadband services to passengers on aircraft. The company plans to do this through a combination of satellite- and terrestrial-based communication links to aircraft.

This document also includes, for information, the technical conditions of any Notice of Variation of Aircraft Radio Equipment licences. Owners of aircraft will need these to install and use terminals on their aircraft which communicate with the terrestrial base stations.
