Consultation opened on Ofcom 2012/2013 workplan

The communications regulator Ofcom has issued its draft work plan covering the period from the 1st April 2012 to the 31st March 2013. The plan presents Ofcom’s strategic purpose, proposed priorities and work programme for the period.
One of the draft priorities in the plan is to “promote the efficient use of public assets.” and to achieve this, Ofcom plans to auction spectrum in the 800 MHz (digital dividend) band and the 2.6 GHz band. The frequency bands for auction also need to be cleared in a timely manner and any interference occurring between new services in these bands and existing services in adjacent bands mitigated.
This draft plan is open for consultation until 17 February 2012 after which time a final plan will be developed.
