Ofcom publishes 700 MHz clearance programme update

12/10/2017

Ofcom has today published a progress update on work to clear spectrum in the 700 MHz band, to make it available for mobile broadband use. In November 2014, Ofcom decided to make spectrum in the 700 MHz band available for mobile data as soon as practicably possible. This involves clearing some of the spectrum currently used by Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) and Programme Making and Special Events (PMSE) licensees. In October 2016, following consultation with stakeholders including Government, Ofcom confirmed that the programme should be completed by the second quarter of 2020. Since confirming the timescales for the delivery of the 700 MHz clearance work, Ofcom has reviewed the progress of the programme. While the programme is a complex engineering project subject to risks that could potentially delay completion, the review has found that all workstreams are currently on track. The programme is therefore expected to be completed in 2020 as planned. Today's document summarises the review's findings and conclusions
