Localised mobile communications on ships

Ofcom is consulting on plans to make new regulations that would enable ship passengers to use mobile devices on-board ships, without the need for a wireless telegraphy licence, if certain standards and requirements are met.

The plans would mean that passengers could use their devices without causing interference to land-based mobile networks.

The system enabling such use effectively replicates, on a ship, the operation of a land base station. It is intended to implement a recent decision by the European Commission. These regulations will replace similar exemption regulations we made in 2011.

To give proper effect to the European Commission decision, it is also necessary to vary the ship radio wireless telegraphy licences in order to ensure operators comply with certain new technical and operational requirements. Read more here.
