UK to auction Digital Dividend soon
The UK government has issued instructions to Ofcom to arrange a combined auction of the countries 2.6GHz and 800MHz (digital dividend) spectrum as soon as possible.
“Under our plans, our mobile industry will have access to the 21st-century infrastructure it needs to give UK consumers the latest technologies and even better coverage for broadband on their mobile phones,” said Ed Vaizey, the communications minister.
The government hopes the airwaves auction will take place by the end of 2011.
