Ofcom opens up the airwaves for additional 4G in the future

Ofcom has today decided to allow mobile phone operators to use their existing 2G and 3G radio spectrum for superfast 4G mobile broadband in the future.

The decision allows mobile operators to increase mobile broadband speeds in future by re-using their 2G and 3G spectrum for 4G, and to plan and implement moves to 4G technology in these bands without having to submit future regulatory applications. The decision also meets Ofcom’s objective to liberalise mobile spectrum for use with all currently-available technologies.

Today’s statement can be viewed here ‘liberalises’ all mobile licences in the 900 MHz, 1800 MHz and 2100 MHz bands to permit the deployment of LTE and WiMAX (4G) services, where such licences have not already been relaxed. It also permits an increase in the maximum permitted base station transmit power in the 900 MHz frequency band for 3G and 4G technology.
