Ofcom has today published an update on work to make spectrum in the 3.6GHz to 3.8GHz band available for future mobile use.
11/02/2018

This band is currently used for fixed links, fixed satellite services and wireless solutions, and is part of the band identified as the primary band for 5G services in Europe. In October 2017, they confirmed their intention to remove current spectrum authorisations for fixed links and vary licences and grants of Recognised Spectrum Access for satellite earth stations in the band.

Today's update confirms they have taken the following action, in-line with their published proposals:

issued notices to revoke all fixed links licences in the band, with an effective date of 23 December 2022; varied 12 Permanent Earth Station licences and three grants of Recognised Spectrum Access, with an effective date of 1 June 2020; varied one grant of Recognised Spectrum Access with an effective date of 1 September 2020.

The effect of their decisions, in line with the proposed approach we set out in October 2017, is that spectrum will be available to enable future mobile services in the 3.6GHz to 3.8GHz band to be deployed in many areas from June 2020, but not necessarily nationwide before the end of 2022.
