UK Government to Sell 750 MHz Spectrum

Included within the recent 2016 Budget the Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne announced that 750 MHz of Public Sector radio spectrum would be released. 

Currently, Amateur Services share much of 750MHz spectrum with the Public Sector 

Electromagnetic spectrum is a valuable and scarce resource. Budget 2016 announces a new government commitment that 750MHz of valuable public sector spectrum in bands under 10GHz will be made available by 2022, of which 500MHz will be made available by 2020.

This builds on the UK government’s previous 2010 commitment, and will deliver wider economic benefits by generating capital receipts and by supporting innovation in digital communications services and the development of new technologies.
