Modified at:26 January 2017
This document sets out proposals on competition issues for the forthcoming auction of spectrum in the 2.3 and 3.4 GHz bands.
The 2.3 and 3.4 GHz spectrum is needed to provide additional capacity to meet growing consumer demand for mobile broadband. It is important that the frequencies are made available as quickly as possible for the benefit of consumers and industry.
We have already consulted on other aspects of this award and the matters discussed in this document therefore represent the last issues on which we need to conclude before the auction can proceed.
