LONDON --Ofcom today announced further details of proposals for the release of spectrum, suitable for a range of new services such as mobile broadband and advanced wireless services.

Ofcom proposes to release the spectrum in the 2010-2025 MHz and 2500-2690 MHz bands (known as 2.6 GHz) on a technology and service neutral basis. This will allow organisations to decide how best to use the spectrum within certain minimum technical specifications to prevent harmful interference. In total 205 MHz will be available.

There are a number of potential uses of the spectrum including mobile broadband wireless services. These can offer high-speed, high-capacity mobile data connections enabling the delivery of advanced mobile services using technologies such as WiMAX or evolutions of 3G technology. In 2000 this spectrum was identified internationally for the future development of these services.
