Ofcom is today inviting stakeholders to express their interest in acquiring radio spectrum that is being released for civil use by the Ministry of Defence (MOD). This spectrum includes 40 MHz located in the 2.3 GHz band and another 150 MHz between 3.4 GHz and 3.6 GHz.

These bands are in the process of being harmonised across Europe for mobile broadband; and are therefore likely to be used for 4G services.

As well as inviting expressions of interest, Ofcom is today making a number of proposals relating to the award of this spectrum. This includes proposed band plans for the spectrum and a proposal to relocate UK Broadband spectrum holdings within the 3400 to 3600 MHz band, to form one contiguous block of frequencies for award.
