Ofcom sets 900 and 1800 MHz licence fees and consults on 3.4 and 3.6 GHz fees | PolicyTracker: Jan 2019
"UK mobile network operators (MNOs) will pay £1.09 million ($1.4 million) per MHz per year for 900 MHz spectrum, and £0.805 million ($1.02 million) per MHz annually for 1800 MHz spectrum beginning 31 January 2019, Ofcom said.

The levels reflect the full market value of the frequencies and take into account input from Vodafone, Telefónica (O2), EE and H3G (Three), as well as evidence from previous UK spectrum auctions and international benchmarks, the regulator added. The lump-sum values were converted into equivalent annual payments using an annualisation rate derived from a post-tax discount rate and a tax adjustment factor."

Lessons from the O2 Network Outage: The Real Cost of Manual Processes, Juha Holkkola Dec 2018
"While the finding that network downtime constitutes 93.5% of the real total cost of manual network management steps was a real eye-opener, these numbers reveal an even more interesting finding. That is, if one invests 20 million into automating the propagation of human errors, the chances are that the cost of downtime can greatly exceed the value of the actual automation investment itself.

Tracking down wideband interference - Land Mobile 20th August 2012
"Two troublesome interference problems which are affecting GSM-R railway communications in the UK – and in other countries which employ the GSM-R radio standard – have been pinned down in a report compiled for Network Rail by wireless experts at Red-M, now a part of Affini. Their work builds on an earlier study carried out by Red-M for Ofcom." Talks about narrowband/broadband interference; one fix is to improve receiver selectivity.
