Ofcom licenses “white spaces”

Ofcom has begun awarding licenses for DTT services in the so-called “white spaces” in the broadcast frequency bands. The first license has been awarded to Channel M for the provision of services in Manchester.
Further licenses will be issued for the Cardiff area by the end of the month.
Ofcom suggests that such licenses could also be used for the provision of mobile broadband services.
